A lot of areas were affected including Miyagi, Fukushima and Sendai. There
was a tsunami warning for the pacific region, as a precaution parts of northern and southern America were evacuated to a safer areas. Weather Forecast Fukushima Incident
After the Devastating disaster, the residents living in Fukushima were ordered to leave the area immediately because there was a nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima power plant. People were dying from the nuclear radiation coming from the power plant! Death Tolls

Seismologists discovered that this particular earthquake was 160 times stronger than the quake that hit Christchurch in February 2011. Extra Information
The Japan news showed live footage of the mega tsunami measuring kilometers wide, moving quickly through the countryside smothering everything in water in it's path.
The problem was Prezi would not let me insert a video of the live footage! :( Clean Up Costs
The Japanese bank offered $183 Billion (US) to the banking system on the 14th of March in attempt to normalize market conditions. The world bank's guessed that the economic cost was $235 Billion (US), making this particular natural disaster the most expensive in the world! After
A year after the disaster, Japan is still feeling the aftermaths of the earthquake. The government has pledged to complete it's clean up by 2014. There is now not much electricity left and 2 million families have been left with out any electricity, millions more, including Tokyo are facing constant blackouts which are reducing the number of train services. Oil and gas plants have been shut down which means no one can refill there vehicles so they will have to go by foot. Pictures Bibliography:
