Caption: Minami Sanriku. View of the town of Minami Sanriku, Miyagi prefecture, Japan, after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck 130km off the east coast of Japan at 14.46 local time (05.46 GMT) on 11th March 2011, triggering an enormous Tsunami. It was the largest earthquake ever recorded in Japan and the 5th largest in the world. Tidal waves of up to 10 metres high swept ashore, devastating areas up to 10km inland and destroying 95 percent of Minami Sanriku.
