By Michael RennieThe earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, 2011 was the strongest in recorded history.
It triggered a tsunami that hit the Pacific, and the resulting disaster destroyed about half of the country’s coast.
The devastating tsunami was followed by the worst tsunami in history, when a tsunami hit a town in southern Japan in 2011.
This story tells the story of what happened to the world’s most populous country.
The earthquakeThat day, the Japan Meteorological Agency said the quake was centered at a depth of about 7 kilometres, and that it struck at a speed of about 9.3 kilometres per hour.
It was felt around the world, but most of the damage was concentrated in Japan.
The quake caused an estimated $30bn in damage.
That was less than the total loss to Japan of $55bn in 2011, according to the US Geological Survey.
In the United States, the number of deaths from the tsunami was reported at 5,094, compared with about 3,000 in Japan, according the USGS.
The damage to the Japanese economyThe tsunami triggered a global recession.
Many Japanese families left their homes, and unemployment soared.
Some businesses shut down.
A number of people died in the aftermath of the tsunami.
At the time, the Japanese government had a huge deficit of $10.2bn, according a report by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR), a think tank.
The NIESR found that the tsunami had caused the country to become so deeply dependent on imports that many households in the country were already struggling to survive.
Some of the imports that caused the shockwave were food, rice, and sugar.
Some were fuel, including diesel and kerosene.
In many parts of the island nation, the country was reliant on imports of rice, rice syrup and sugar to fuel its economy.
This was all done in the name of saving lives and keeping people from having to live in fear of a future disaster.
The tsunamiThe tsunami was the most powerful earthquake in recorded world history.
A US Geological survey estimated that the quake produced damage of around 1.2 million tonnes.
It also caused tsunamis that were more powerful than those from the 2011 tsunami, according at least two US scientists who analysed seismic data from the area.
The USGS found that during the tsunami, some of the most vulnerable people in Japan were the elderly, children, the disabled, people with disabilities, and people living in temporary accommodation.
In particular, elderly people, those who lived in temporary homes, people who had difficulty walking or had a disability, and those who had no income were most vulnerable.
In some parts of Japan, some people in temporary housing had to stay with their families.
People were evacuated to temporary accommodation as the tsunami swept through, and some were forced to return to their homes.
In other areas, people were given food parcels, and other items were sent to people who needed it.
The Japanese government did not prepare for the possibility of a tsunami.
Many officials blamed the disaster on the tsunami’s speed.
The government said it did not have enough resources to prepare for a tsunami, and its response was slow.
The disaster that happened on the day of the quakeWhen it hit, it was a tsunami in the Pacific.
It struck at an intensity of about 1.4 metres per second, which is about half the speed of sound.
The wave smashed the ocean floor, damaging most of Japan’s coastal towns and islands.
It left more than a million people dead.
By that time, about 1,500 tonnes of tsunami debris had washed ashore.
The government said about half was found by rescuers in the wake of the disaster.
This is the part of the world where a tsunami comes ashore and you have to evacuate people, but this is the worst disaster that we have seen.
That’s a disaster that nobody had ever seen before, says Professor Koshiro Tanaka, who heads the Centre for Pacific Studies at the National University of Singapore.
The tsunami had destroyed much of the coastline, including in areas such as Kumamoto and Miyagi, he says.
The next big eventThat was March 12, 2012.
It marked the beginning of Japan ‘s second major earthquake, a tremor that occurred on March 8, 1989.
The tremor was caused by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, which was also a major event in Japan at the time.
The Japanese government said the earthquake had been felt for 10 minutes around the country.
By the time the tsunami began to settle, some 3.5 million people were living in shelters in Tokyo and other parts of Tokyo, and tens of thousands were evacuated.
The second earthquakeThe tsunami also caused a massive fire that destroyed a number of homes and caused some 30,000 deaths, according some estimates.
The Japan Meteorology Agency (JMA) reported that some 1.5 billion tonnes of debris from the quake and the tsunami has washed ashore, including around 1
