After the unprecedented earthquake, Japan is mobilizing all rescue efforts. People, both inside and outside of affected area, are moving to help others.
Above is the indications where cars can move. Yellow lines show where Honda cars WERE MOVING during 24 hours of March 12 JST.
Data are being collected, in order to find which roads are intact, from Honda cars equipped with its "InterNavi", GPS and data-transition system, that reports how fast the car is moving on which route.
Remember InterNavi-equipped cars are limited and no data can be obtained in completely isolated and completely network-devastated area.

However, its is inexpressible sorrow to see there is no indication in the seashore areas along the Japan's most beautiful coastline.
