Koriyama, Fukushima (福島県郡山市) by Zo

from four stories to three stories

I started working in Koriyama-city on the 18th. After more than a month, this city doesn’t look like it was hit by the earthquake. But there are rooves under repair under  blue sheet covers, walls fallen down and there are still some dangerous backstreets where the vehicles can’t go through. Yes, there was a big disaster. I helped seniors to organize inside of their homes in which things were scattered. At another place, I used a ladder to replace a TV antenna. Aftershocks hit the city – sometimes big ones, so we have to be careful.

18日から活動を開始した。被災から1か月が過ぎた郡山市には桜が咲き誇り、一見何事もなかったかのようだが、よく見ると、瓦が落ちてブルーシートで補修した屋根が目立つし、壁が崩れた家や倒れた塀もある。裏道にはまだ通行止めの危険個所もあり、街のいたるところに震災の傷跡がみられる。被災して施設に避難された高齢者のおたくに伺い、めちゃくちゃになった家の中をかたづけた。別のおたくでは、2階建ての屋根に梯子をかけて上り、倒れて落下の心配があるテレビアンテナを立て直した。いまだに余震が続き、時折、大きいものも来るので注意が必要だ。
