Japan Tsunami 2011 by anamaulida


									<div class="KonaBody">
                <p><strong>Japan</strong> was devastated by 8.9 magnitude
<strong>earthquake</strong> unleashing 13 foot <strong>tsunami</strong>
that swept boats, cars, buildings and tons of debris miles inland and
prompting a "nuclear emergency" March 11, 2011.<br> Many people died
estimated around 1000 and 11000 headcounts were transferred to evacuation
centers. A tsunami warning has also been issued for Russia, Marcus Island
and the Northern Marianas. A tsunami watch has been issued for Guam,
Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and US state of Hawaii.</p>

Recent analysis of historical data shows that four of the top ten most
deadly earthquakes and tsunamis since 1701 occurred in the last decade,
including the 2004 Indian Ocean (Sumatra) and 2010 Haiti events. The
magnitude 8.8 2010 Chile earthquake was the fifth largest earthquake ever
recorded. These events generate questions about the frequency and
severity of geologic natural hazards worldwide. The National Geophysical
Data Center and co-located World Data Center for Geophysics and Marine
Geology maintain a global historical event database of tsunamis,
significant earthquakes, and significant volcanic eruptions
(http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/hazards/). Analysis of the database revealed
that while the total number of magnitude 7.5 earthquakes per decade since
1901 has remained consistent, the last decade has experienced some of the
most devastating geologic events in history. Until 2010, the most deadly
event in the Caribbean was the 1902 eruption of Pelee that caused 28 000
deaths. While devastating, this event is dwarfed by the 230 000 deaths
that resulted from the 2010 Haiti earthquake. The 2010 Chile earthquake
is among the top ten most deadly earthquakes and tsunamis in the entire
history of Chile. While the database does not provide answers as to why
these recent events are so deadly, the analysis reinforces the need for
increasing our understanding of earthquakes and tsunamis in all regions
of the world. As the global population continues to increase, placing
more people at risk, it is important to dedicate resources to mitigate
against the effects of such natural hazards. Experts said that this
pattern was not unusual. With this earthquake as with others, essentially
two tsunamis are generated, one that hits the local coastline, often
within minutes, and another can travel for thousands of miles in the
opposite direction, some of its energy dissipating as it spreads across
the open ocean.</p>

<p>It is then time to reunite and be awaken about the natural effect the
development has made to our Mother Earth and to the current ecological
status the world is right now. Every nation who will help rebuild the
broken and devastated country would be a good help in times like
<p>UN, USA, Russia, China, Korea, Singapore, Spain, France, UK, Canada,
Africa and all other countries not mentioned should unite and give a
helping hand to the countries experiencing calamities, not only natural
calamities but also political and economical calamities.</p>
<p>For <strong>Japan</strong>, this <strong>tsunami </strong>that
devastated your country is just a trial, and so long as people learn to
value their country and fellow, you will overcome this situation.</p>
