Google yesterday released its first satellite pictures of Japan taken since Friday's quake, revealing in stark detail before-and-after views of Kamaishi, maps indicating which roads remain passable, and other images of the massive devastation. Google also set up a Picasa gallery full of before-and-after images from around the northeast region of Japan. For more information, see the LA Times story. (Read more Japan earthquake stories.)
