The Abstract for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami:
The March 11, 2011 earthquake off the eastern coast of the Japanese island of Honshu triggered a serious tsunami that impacted the western coast of island. The tsunami and earthquake caused fires, blackouts, and flooding several miles inland. The waves reached maximum heights of over 3m (9 ft.) and swept people, vehicles, buildings, and debris inland; then as the waves receded, carried the debris out to sea. Tsunami waves of 3 to 6 feet high were reported eight (8) hours after the earthquake in Hawaii. The satellite image shows damage to highways, railroads and an urban area along the east coast of Honshu.
