US Navy Images of Devastation in Japan

Posted by havealittletalk on March 15, 2011

Last year I found that the US Navy News Service: Eye on the Fleet was a good source for public domain images of the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake. I returned to that site tonight; here are a few examples of the growing collection of images from Japan. Captions are copied from that site.

I guess what we see in the next picture is ice.
