In 2011, a magnitude-9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami struck Japan's northeastern coast, killing nearly 20,000 people and severely damaging the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station. The Great East Japan Earthquake was the largest earthquake on record for Japan, and the economic cost, about $235 billion, placed it at the top of the list of the most expensive natural disasters on record.

Go to the link and see the photos. It doesn't seem like it's been 5 years since that happened. I remember when it did I was glued to the internet that day, waiting for news about what was happening over there. So sad!  So many people killed and missing. Not to mention the reactors that are still spewing radioactive materials and polluting all of us without end. I guess that will go on forever because they've lost control of it.  What were they thinking building that group of reactors on the ocean in such a dangerous area prone to severe earthquakes?
