On 11 March 2011 a magnitude 9 earthquake struck 130 km off the coast of Northern Japan causing a massive Tsunami that swept across the coast of Northern Honshu. The earthquake and Tsunami caused extensive damage and loss of life and the damage caused to the Fukushima nuclear plant has created an ongoing nuclear crisis.
