In November 2020, a magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck off the coast of Japan and killed at least 16 people.
The following year, another quake occurred off the Japanese coast, triggering another tsunami.
Japan has been widely blamed for the devastating earthquake and tsunami, which occurred in the center of the nation’s biggest island, the Miyagi prefecture.
The region is home to a massive number of fishing and tourism industry jobs.
However, the country’s tsunami-induced economic boom has led to a serious decline in the countrys fishing industry.
In 2017, Japan experienced its worst drought in history, with millions of people affected.
The nation also faced a massive influx of migrants, many of whom were fleeing war and poverty in Syria.
The government has also been under fire for its handling of the crisis.
The country was hit with multiple earthquakes and tsunami events in 2017, including one that killed more than 300 people and injured thousands more.
The disaster prompted Japan to impose strict new safety measures for tourists, including the closure of popular attractions like Shinto shrines, as well as a curfew, in an attempt to stem the tide of disaster.
Following the deadly quake and tsunami in Japan, a similar quake and subsequent tsunami occurred off southern Taiwan in 2018.
In addition, a devastating earthquake struck Nepal in 2016, and another in 2016 hit the Maldives.
