Doug Lerner reports from Tokyo and St. Louis, and points beyond…

People in the U.S. east coast are naturally talking about their magnitude 5.8 earthquake today. It was the largest quake in that part of the U.S. for 114 years.

As of this morning, here in Japan, we have had exactly 1,500 earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater since March 11.

Current tallies are:

15,707 known dead
4,642 still missing
5,717 injured

Over 45,000 buildings destroyed
Over 144,000 building damaged
Over 230,000 cars and trucks destroyed

And there are still over 85,000 people living in evacuation centers.
