The official casualty toll was 236 dead, 725 missing and 1,028 injured, although police said 200-300 bodies were found along the coast in Sendai, the biggest city in the area. Authorities said they weren't able to reach the area because of damage to the roads. Black smoke could still be seen in the skies around Sendai, presumably from gas pipes snapped by the quake or tsunami. -- AP
