japan tsunami

japan tsunami

The most devastating and biggest earthquake to hit the country of Japan since records began 150 years ago, pummeled it's way into the northeast coast of the country today, which has went on to trigger a 32 foot tsunami that has been washing away everything in it's path.

Japanese television showed the vast wall of debris-filled water sweeping away cars, ships and even buildings. The 8.9-magnitude quake's epicenter was 231 miles northeast of Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey reported. But the destruction caused by the natural disaster is expected to spread far beyond Japan. So far, at least 32 people in Japan have been killed, and an unknown number injured, by the 8.9-magnitude quake and tsunami, the Kyodo news agency reported. But the sheer scale of the devastation suggests that the final death toll will be much higher.

So a shocking report from the far east and here's hoping that the disaster starts to ease as time goes on.
