On 11 March 2011 a huge earthquake hit Japan. The magnitude 9.0 quake triggered a destructive tsunami and caused a serious accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
Much of the focus was, has been, and continues to be, on Fukushima.
Too much, perhaps ? Some figures:
Earthquake and tsunami
Drowned in tsunami
Other (non radiation)
Killed by radiation
This does not – of course – tell anything like the whole story.
Please treat as useful context.
