Evacuate the Area! In 2011, an earthquake and tsunami hit Japan which left it crippling. This then led to the falling of a nuclear power plant located in Japan. Japan was in a mess and is still recovering today. The man made disaster had a bigger impact on Japan than the natural disasters.
The natural disasters in Japan consisted of, the earthquake, and the tsunami. The earthquake was of a magnitude 9.0, which brought up the massive waves crushing the Japan coast. Scientists knew there would be an earthquake soon but not of that size.
Effects of Man Made Disaster
"The incident released radioactivity directly into the atmosphere. The Japanese government told people living within 20 miles of the Daiichi plant to stay indoors, stop using air conditioning, and to keep their windows closed" (Wood). People were released to radiation, and so was almost everything else. Each day radioactive water is released into the pacific.
Natural Disaster Effects
"More than 18,000 people were killed in the disaster. Most died by drowning" (Oskin).
"More than 125,000 buildings have been washed away or seriously damaged; property damage is estimated to be more than $310 billion" (Sorkhabi).
Man Made Disaster
After the earthquake and tsunami, the nuclear power plant was destroyed.
The power plant's cooling system was ruined by the tsunami and earthquake which caused the disaster.
