Approximately 2,000 bodies were found Monday in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan’s northeast coast, the Kyodo news agency reported.

If confirmed, the discovery would be the largest yet of victims from last week’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Roughly 1,000 bodies were found coming ashore on Miyagi’s Ojika Peninsula, while another 1,000 were seen in the town of Minamisanriku, where some 10,000 people are unaccounted for, Kyodo reported.
