At 2:46 p.m., the moment a magnitude 9.0 quake struck on March 11, 2011, triggering a massive tsunami, the people observed a moment of silence in Fukushima.
Japan – Fukushima – March 11, 2011
TOKYO (AP) – Japan on Friday paid tribute to the victims and renewed searches for those still missing from a massive earthquake and tsunami 11 years ago that also triggered a nuclear disaster in Fukushima where tens of thousands still cannot return home.
This is so heart breaking and scary to watch. Seeing the sheer destruction power of a tsunami and earthquake is simply terrifying. It puts into perspective how beyond our control mother nature truly is. My heart goes out to the people of Japan who lost their lives, those who have lost loved ones, and those who are going to be struggling to pick up the pieces when the waters recede.
