Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami

REMEMBERING Tohökų Earthquake and Tsunamni ( 東北 地方 太平洋 沖 地震 ) A year ago on March Ilth 2011, the east coast of Japan was hit by one of the 5 largest earthquakes since records began. It inevitably preceded a tsunami which would go on to cause destruction and loss of life on a scale which seemed unimaginable even for an earthquake hub such as Japan. Take a moment to reflect on the scale of the tragedy with this overview of the events. Mw GO0m Km Magnitude of quake on the Moment Magnitude scale. Distance from the epicenter to Central Tokyo. The earthquake was 600,000,000 times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb in terms of energy released. 2000 OVER Amount of aftershocks which have occured since the initial quake. An aftershock Is a smaller earthquake following the maln shock of a large earthquake | 405- S26 235 bn m Height of the Tsunami In metres at Its highest. Estimated economic cost by the World Bank in U.S. Dollars, making It the most expensive natural disaster ever. IMPACT UPON LIVES. DEATHS 15,854 MISSING 3,155 9,677 INJURED Estimated future cancer deaths down to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster 100-1,000 DEATHS ΒΥΤΥΡ DEATHS BY AGE 76.1% WERE 50+ • Tsunami • Shaking O Fire, Landslides, Other • Indirect Causes • 70-79 • 60-69 40-49 • 30-39 • under 10 • 80+ 50-59 • 20-29 • IO-19 254,39° 129.07 Buildings 'half collapsed'. 365750P Buildings totally destroyed. Buildings partlally damaged. Progress. A year on and Japan continues to rebuild with the help of the rest of the world through donations and the determination of its enviable and brave public spirit. If you would like to help one of the greatest countries on the planet rebuild from the horrific events which occured a year ago, you can click the link at the bottom of this page to donate to the cause. 覚 え る 。 (TO REMEMBER) REMEMBERING Tohökų Earthquake and Tsunamni ( 東北 地方 太平洋 沖 地震 ) A year ago on March Ilth 2011, the east coast of Japan was hit by one of the 5 largest earthquakes since records began.
