11th March, 2011 – A 33ft tsunami in Japan today has reportedly killed at least 32 people as it swept over Japan’s northeastern coast after the country’s biggest earthquake in recorded history.
The 8.9 magnitude megaquake caused a huge wave that hit the port of Sendai city, sending ships crashing into the shore and carrying cars and buildings through streets.
It also rocked the capital, Tokyo, which was among the cities shaken by at least 19 subsequent aftershocks.
