A Disaster that hit Japan on March 2011

Almost every year there would be a disaster. Which is a sad news to everyone.  In early year of 2011, on 11th of March at 2:46 p.m. local time, (about 150 km off the coast of the island of Honshu) a disaster happened in Japan. Everyone knew how bad it hit Japan when a large and destructive earthquake struck  over night. The magnitude 8.9 quake has generated a 30-foot tsunami that destroyed the whole town. These has became our daily highlight & discussion. I couldn’t deny that this disaster has cause a great impact to the Japan.

*a list of the likely impact of and response to the devastating earthquake*


Now that the quake & tsunami has subside. Yet people are living in fear worrying about the exposed radiation(risk of developing cancer). Until today; there have been a total of four explosions at the plant since it was damaged in Friday’s massive quake and tsunami. Really pray there wouldn’t be anymore explosion and hope the government could come up with a solution soon.


There were series of photos I got from boston.com about the vast devastation. I was holding back my tears while looking each and every piece of the photos.

To people whom does not lend  a hand on this, its better to remain silent and pray for the best. Rather than being ignorant by giving comments without thinking the consequences.
