On 10 March 2015, a Japanese National Police Agency report confirmed 15,894 deaths, 6,152 injured, and 2,562 people missing across twenty prefectures, as well as 228,863 people living away from their home in either temporary housing or due to permanent relocation.
The tsunami caused nuclear accidents, primarily the level 7 meltdowns at three reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant complex, and the associated evacuation zones affecting hundreds of thousands of residents.
2011 has been a bumper year for the large-scale natural environmental disaster; not only the Christchurch, New Zealand Earthquake, the Australian Queensland Floods, but now also the Japanese Sendai Earthquake and subsequent Tsunami have wreaked havoc on those affected and spell economic disaster for the future. The Japanese are well-versed in coping with earthquakes; in 1923 the Great Kanto earthquake in Tokyo left over 100,000 dead amidst widespread architectural destruction, and again, in 1995 the Kobe earthquake resulted in over 6,000 dead, 415,000 injured, 100,000 homes devastated and 185,000 homes in need of partial reconstruction. As a direct result of the Kanto and Kobe earthquakes, Japan is one of the countries best placed, architecturally-speaking, to withstand an earthquake of severe magnitude such as that which took place recently at Sendai. The ensuing damage caused by the Tsunami has left thousands homeless and may yet cost Japan its reputation as a centre for industry and a leader in the technological fields as factory production ceases during the chaos and the damage interrupts commercial progress. The short-term problems of supporting the injured, managing a clean water supply, minimising the risk of spreading disease and sending relief to the affected areas aren't the only thing being faced by the Japanese; longer-term issues of re-building the Japanese economy, along with Tokyo's architectural skyline are now looming.
When a population is faced with immediate danger, the long-term consequences are usually the last thing on our minds, and yet the position of Japan as one of the most economically prosperous Asian countries has added another dimension to the disaster.
In a time when the world's economy is perhaps least-able to sustain a further hit, one of the US's greatest trade partnerships is under threat.
Over the past decade, Japan (the world's third largest economy behind China and the US) has been suffering from something of an economic decline. We have mentioned the state of the great river frequently, but the Mekong generally becomes more dammed and less likely to provide for its people and wildlife. When can he climate changers and the global de-warmers finally have their way and be able to replace the whole carbon footprints of nations?
What stories are appearing from the genomes of various creatures that can be mixed up with our histories. When dolphins are 'rescued' in various countries, the car given seems to be ill-considered. Japan’s largest carmaker, Toyota, has confirmed that it has suspended its Japanese vehicle production until at least March 22, while overtime and weekend shifts at its North American plants have also been cut as the firm cannot keep up with the supply of parts in Japan.
Nissan is in the process of repairing its plants in Japan, but delivery of parts from smaller suppliers have slowed this process. The firm has also confirmed that it will donate more that 400,000,000-yen (£3million) to the relief effort, along with providing 50 vehicles to support aid agencies. Mitsubishi’s Shogun, ASX, Lancer, Lancer Evolution X and i-MiEV are all produced in three plants in Japan, in Aichi, Gifu and Okayama. Honda has suspended all activity at its Sayama Plant, Ogawa Plant, Tochigi Factory, Hamamatsu Factory, A Suzuka Factory and Kumamoto Factory until March 20. BMW and Volkswagen employ around 750 and 600 sales staff respectively, and have begun the process of repatriating those which wish to leave. Tyre maker Bridgestone is due to restart production in its eastern Japanese factories, with the priority on truck and bus tyres. Motor sport has also been affected, with the Japanese MotoGP Grand Prix, originally due to be held at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit on April 24, postponed until October 2.

The earthquake is also often referred to in Japan as the Great East Japan earthquake (??????, Higashi nihon daishinsai) and also known as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, and the 3.11 earthquake. A 10 February 2014 agency report listed 127,290 buildings totally collapsed, with a further 272,788 buildings 'half collapsed', and another 747,989 buildings partially damaged. Many electrical generators were taken down, and at least three nuclear reactors suffered explosions due to hydrogen gas that had built up within their outer containment buildings after cooling system failure resulting from the loss of electrical power. The Bank of Japan offered ?15 trillion (US$183 billion) to the banking system on 14 March in an effort to normalize market conditions.

Once the devastating consequences of the earthquake have been fully realised, how will Japan begin to move forward and what does the future hold for those who have been affected? In the aftermath of such events, Japan placed great emphasis on creating an 'earthquake-proof' rebuild. What the Japanese Government hadn't banked on was the knock-on effect of the Tsunami, which hit the east coast of Japan with very little warning. Over the next few years Japan will face a barrage of problems; not only will it have to cope with the fallout from agricultural crop damage (waterlogged fields from the Tsunami mean fewer crops, fewer jobs and the added cost of agricultural regeneration plus the high-cost reliance on international imports), the national cost of supporting the architectural re-build, the financial impact of low employment rates as business struggle to cope with damaged office buildings and failing systems and processes, not to mention the un-measurable emotional cost as the population loses friends and family to the disaster. With the current economic crisis as it is, Japan was in no financial position to manage a large-scale domestic disaster such as the one it is currently facing.
However, good news cannot be ignored in this case and it is really cheering to hear of 3 calves born during this dry season in the freshwater stretches of the river. Well, there is hope in some of the latest renewable investments and this example of pure science that will soon be transferred to a new set of technologies. The town is just one of many nearly erased from Japan's northeastern coast, where water, electricity, and telecommunications are largely unavailable.As of Monday an estimated 350,000 people are reportedly homeless in the wake of Friday's magnitude 9 earthquakea€”Japan's biggest on record.
The daughter is among people evacuated from the vicinity of Fukushima's damaged nuclear plants. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded to have hit Japan, and the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record-keeping began in 1900. The earthquake and tsunami also caused extensive and severe structural damage in north-eastern Japan, including heavy damage to roads and railways as well as fires in many areas, and a dam collapse. Residents within a 20 km (12 mi) radius of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and a 10 km (6.2 mi) radius of the Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant were evacuated. The World Bank's estimated economic cost was US$235 billion, making it the costliest natural disaster in world history. Surviving the short-term effects of the earthquake is one thing, surviving the next ten years is another issue entirely. There is hope that the other populations, in Bangladesh and Myanmar, for example, are also being protected as well as this.
They could even end up in commercial aquarium shows, but they certainly rarely make it back to the sea. It symbolize the thousands of homes and families that were destroyed and washed away by the earthquake and tsunami. The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves that reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft) in Miyako in Tohoku's Iwate Prefecture, and which, in the Sendai area, travelled up to 10 km (6 mi) inland. How will the Tsunami affect the Japanese population over the next few years, and how long will it take them to fully recover from this environmental disaster?
The earthquake moved Honshu (the main island of Japan) 2.4 m (8 ft) east, shifted the Earth on its axis by estimates of between 10 cm (4 in) and 25 cm (10 in), and generated sound waves detected by the low-orbiting GOCE satellite.
