Upanianabe has typed his post into a translator and it is very difficult to understand, as these translators are crap. Still, quite good fun to work out.
power herb = power plant
stationary missing = still missing
shield = shelter
people false = people affected
Any ideas on "a chain was pulled from the rubble" and "washing one's hand of a tube"?
Awful event though.

"A Chain was pulled from the rubble" possibly means a string (of survivors)?.
Washing one's hands = dispensed? were trapped survivors fed through a tube?
