  4. Where exactly did the tsunami hit? Tokyo , a ferocious spawned by one of the large earthquakes ever recorded slammed Japan’s eastern coast Friday, killing hundreds of people as it swept away boats, cars and homes. Hours later, the tsunami hit Hawaii and warning blacked the pacific, putting areas on alert as far away as South America, Canada, Alaska and the entire U.S West Coast in Japan, the area around a nuclear power plant in the northeast was evacuated after the reactor’s cooling system failed.

  5. How did the tsunami happen? The 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck the coastal of Japan on Friday, devastating very large swaths of the coast and spawning a powerful tsunami, caused by the pacific tectonic plate thrusting underneath the country, and forcing the seabed and ocean eater upward. Japan is one of the most seismically active areas in the world; In fact, the earthquake generated roughly the amount of energy that the U.S consumes in as year, David Wald, a seismologist with the national earthquake information center at USGS.

  6. What were the effects the tsunami left in Japan? Freezing winds, hailstorms and thick snow are the latest threats to 430,000 survivors of northern Japan’s cascade of disasters. After the massive earthquake, devastating tsunami and nuclear crisis, many people made homeless are now facing icy weather, with really low temperatures. The official death toll has risen to rise to 4,225 , with 8,194 people registered as missing. A big concern is for those who escaped the tsunami but lost their homes. Up to 2,400 shelters are accommodating them; usually these are schools, shrines and city offices, but they are not equipped for the care and feeding of such a large number of people.
