The death count in Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami has climbed to 10,668 people, the Japanese newspaper Sankei reported on its website on Sunday, citing police data. The total death toll from the disaster could rise much higher as the police said 16,574 people are still missing. And a total of 243,049 people are staying at temporary accommodation centers, the paper also highlighted. Meanwhile, the embattled Japanese government has said the damage from the disaster could total a whopping $310 billion (Webpage http://en.rian.ru/world/20110327/163230887.html, posted March 27, 2011). This is one humongous catastrophe with a triple whammy, encompassing earthquake, tsunami and nuclear radiation!
