I would love to know that as well. It would take enough time to evacuate 140,000 in an utterly normal situation during normal times. How many people had cars lost in the tsunami? How many busses destroyed? No trains are running in that area. And then the roads themselves sound like a disaster in themselves. And evacuate to where? What location? Do they have shelters for 140,000 extra evacuees, not including other people who have lost their homes? Whose feeding them? Tons and tons of question on that alone.

Overall though to be hit with not only one disaster, but three (and potentially more) at the same time, I'd say the Japanese are doing the best they can, with what they have, as they can. Their government is not in an enviable position right now.
Could you imagine the same scenario here in the States? Katrina was handled bad enough when it happened.
