Tsunami in Japan.
The news was a bombshell when one of my friends told me about the massive earthquake that destroyed most of Japan. 8.9-magnitude earthquake shook Japan erupting a violent tsunami. It was so powerful that it sent ships crashing to the shore. I read in the news that the water level was equivalent to the small houses in Japan and the it engulfed most of it. Its discovered that the earthquake was Japan's largest in 140 years. Russia and Indonesia, Central American countries like Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica and the U.S. state of Hawaii were all hit by it in the late afternoon today. The causalities count is not yet announced but after a forceful tsunami that washed most of Japan, the count is expected to be a little high. People are in shock across the globe after hearing the news and all TV channels are busy updating latest news from Japan. It was found that the tsunami hit Tokyo the most, one of the 47 prefectures in Japan, having a population of 30 million people. Authorities said that another tsunami is expected to hit in a few hours. When i was searching the latest news about the incident, there was tsunami alerts in Google home page warning people that another tsunami is expected because of the shock wave that the earthquake in Japan caused. This is a terrifying news to everyone and i wish that the impending tsunami just sink into the earth and NEVER erupts.
