Earthquake experts now say that the quake in Western Japan is the deadliest to hit that country in 70 years. The death toll has now surpassed 4,000 and hundreds who are still missing are feared dead. By comparison, a 1928 quake in Fukui killed 3,769 people. Today, new fires flared in the city of Kobe as rescuers continued the monumental task of sifting through the wreckage for survivors. Six U.S. Air Force planes delivered 15,000 blankets to Kobe. The Japanese government has allocated $1 billion for earthquake relief and rebuilding. Each family that lost its head of household will get $50,000; compensation for other family members is $25,000.
