Japan is used to natural calamities especially earthquakes. Shaking the whole nation at 2:30pm afternoon Japan’s Time, the whole nation was now under threat from the massive calamity which has struck Japan paralysing nation to halt. Hundreds & thousands of people have been evacuated from the low lying areas especially in the north eastern islands. With its epi centre near the coast of North Eastern Islands of Japan measuring 8.9 on ricter scale not only shookes the nation in Sendai city but also triggering in the massive tsunami which with the force of more than 10 mtr waves full of filth & debris caused the massive damage to the infrastructure & taking the death toll of 300 which is still increasing, flooding towns & sweeping away cars, ships, boats & houses reaching almost 10 kms inland. It struck with such a huge force that one train was swept away which went missing near Kyodo & derailing the other leaving no traces of the number of people on board where water crossing the roof tops. Airports are shut down. One of the major terminal of Tokyo Airport was completley damaged. Train service through out Japan has been cancelled. It is in nature of Japanese People that in such a massive catastrophy they were seeing helping people & were in their full senses which have resulted in the lower death toll as compared to the Earthquake which struck Kobe in 1995.
Now the major concern of Japan & his people is that Fukushima nuclear plant has been shut down due to the Tsunami flooding & aftershocks continued to be felt across the Pacific. Now the danger is of a radioactive reactor which due to power shut down it wasn’t cooled as the cooling systeme which flows cool water into the reactor was got malfuntioned.
Aftermath & Resque Operations: Across the Pacific aftershocks are being felt. The Tsunami warning is been sounding in Hawaii, North American West Coast, Chile, Peru, & South East Asia, schools & offices are asked to remain closed for tommorrow as precaution. Nuclear Emergency has been declared by the Japanese Prime Minister due to the shut down of Nuclear Power Plants & the danger of the leakage of radiation from Fukushima plant. UN has organised the world’s biggest rescue operation for Japan involving 3000 – 4000 forces, 300 ships & the same number of air planes. From now the assumptions are being drawn that insurance sector has been hardest hit & now in Japan claim against natural catastrophy will be the most expensive. The infrastructure of Japan has suffered the most & it will now going to take months to bring it to complete functionality.
