An 8.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Northeast Japan spawned a ferocious tsunami that's caused massive destruction; flattening whole cities, starting raging fires, and killing hundreds. Nearly 88,000 people are reported missing, according to the official Kyodo news agency.

I don't know how they are making such a calculation.

According to the Kyodo News Agency, via BBC, the official missing persons tally is around 88,000.
Let's hope it's nowhere that high.
