On March 11, 2011, Japan was struck by a massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake, triggering an extremely destructive and deadly tsunami. These catastrophic events have caused extensive damage throughout coastal Japan, leaving almost 10,000 people confirmed dead and another 15,000 listed as missing. Millions more are affected by lack of electricity, water and transportation, while the Japanese nuclear power plant Fukushima has been crippled, making a dangerous situation even worse.
