Enormous Sea Waves Obliterate a City in Japan

(Video Medai163)

A 10-meter high tsunami triggered by a massive 8.9 earthquake completely destroyed and flattened Rikuzentakata (Rikuzentakata-shi), a city in Iwate, Japan, late in the afternoon of Friday, March 11, 2011.

This city had an estimated population of 23,687 according to 2008 statistics and the density of 102 persons per km². Its total [land] area is 232.29 km². It was founded on January 1, 1955. But a fateful day befell on this progressive city, wiping out from its location and suffering an extensive damage following that 2011 Sendai earthquake and tsunami.

On this day, Japan's Self Defence Forces said that troops had found 300 to 400 bodies in the coastal area of the said city of Rikuzentakata, which was virtually wiped out by a massive tsunami as reported by broadcaster NHK. But according to the latest report more than 1,000 persons believed to be dead.

To recollect the place is a busy residential area on the north eastern coast of Japan, wherein hundreds of homes, workplaces and roads are seen . It's a typical Japanese town with hundreds of cars moving along the roads just before the evening rush hour, said Daily Mail Reporter .

"The earthquake has caused major damage in broad areas in northern Japan," Prime Minister Naoto Kan said at a news conference.

It was noted that the quake was nearly 8,000 times stronger than one that struck New Zealand late last month, devastating the city of Christchurch.

Those affected Japanese people deserve our sympathies and our condolences to the bereaved, surviving families. They don't have to be condemned or cursed for the such horrible fate they encountered. We should help them. Sending them pieces of clothing, foods, financial assistance would ease their burden, rather than praying. Practically praying wouldn't help them, more so cursing and even condemning them!

Let's put our love for them in action!


A Tsunami is a series of sea waves commonly generated by under-the-sea earthquakes and whose heights could be greater than 5 meters.

It is erroneously called tidal waves and sometimes mistakenly associated with storm surges.

Tsunamis can occur when the earthquake is shallow-seated and strong enough to displace parts of the seabed and disturb the mass of water over it. (Source: Phivocs)
