An advisory panel to the Miyagi Prefectural Government said Thursday it will recommend that four facilities wrecked in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami be preserved as memorials of the tragedy.

The buildings include the three-story disaster headquarters in the town of Minamisanriku, where 43 staff died as the tsunami rolled in. The building was wrecked but its frame remains standing. A makeshift shrine has been set up nearby.
