Photos post-earthquake in Ibaraki

This is a link to photos from a university library in Ibaraki–the prefecture immediately south of Fukushima where the huge tsunami hit and the nuclear plant disaster continues. The actual university library was not hit as badly as Fukushima, but there are many broken glasses and cracks in the walls. In one photo, a ceiling has fallen down. One bookshelf completely fell over even though there was a earthquake pole. What are being called “afterquakes” (余震) are still continuing in various parts of Eastern Japan. The chances of another big earthquake as a part of an afterquake is expected.  Things are still unpredictable and warrant extreme caution and preparation in case of another emergency situation arising.
