In this photo taken Thursday, March 1, 2012, a worker stands amid abandoned cars damaged by the March 11 tsunami in Minamisanriku, Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan. In a sign of progress, much of the debris from the tsunami has been picked up from the flat former town center of Minamisanriku, and gathered in huge piles by the port, where it is being sorted - some by hand - and carted off by dump trucks for incineration or recycling. The Japanese government aims to finish the entire tsunami cleanup process over the next two years. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi) less
