Earthquake, Japan, Tsunami

Map showing major areas of damage in Japan, including Fukushima & missing trains #prayforJapan

This map shows the major areas of damage in Japan, including the Fukushima nuclear plant, the exclusion zone around that plant, and the locations of Sendai and Minamisanriku, two cities badly damaged in the disaster.

The map also shows the epicentre of the earthquake, the areas where the tsunami hit worst, and the rough location of Nobiru station, near which at least one train was washed away. Obviously there has been much more damage in the country, but this map shows the areas that have been most prominent in media coverage.
