Japan Donates $120,000 in Relief Supplies to Alabama

The Japanese Government is helping Alabama tornado victims. 

They are donating emergency supplies including 8,000 blankets and 150 tarps worth more than $120,000. 

On Thursday, the Japan International Cooperation Agency, JICA, had the emergency supplies transported from their warehouse in MIAMI to a FEMA incident base in Montgomery. 

Japan Consul General, Takuji Hanatani, says this gift is in appreciation of what the aid United States offered during their earthquake and tsunami.
