As the true extent of the damage in Japan comes to light and the question over the stability of at least one of Japan’s nuclear power plants continues, pictures of devastation, damaged cars, washed up sea vessels and concertinaed roads spread across the Internet like wildfire.
Sendai was devastated by Friday’s earthquake, and four large holding tanks at the brewery were destroyed.
In the picture, staff gather on the roof tops of the buildings in search of safety while the white foam you can see on the ground is spilled beer.
To give you an idea of the scale of the spillage, look at the size of the cars on the left of the picture…
As ever, our thoughts are with those so badly affected at this time.
