[69], This megathrust earthquake was a recurrence of the mechanism of the earlier 869 Sanriku earthquake, which has been estimated as having a magnitude of at least 8.4 Mw, which also created a large tsunami that inundated the Sendai plain. [300], A report by the IAEA in 2012 found that the Onagawa Nuclear Power Plant, the closest nuclear plant to the epicenter of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, had remained largely undamaged. The main iceberg measured 9.5 km × 6.5 km (5.9 mi × 4.0 mi) (approximately the area of Manhattan Island) and about 80 m (260 ft) thick. 9th of March 2011.

A few cases of suicide are also included. [80], Most of the foreshocks are interplate earthquakes with thrust-type focal mechanisms. This motivated government researchers to look into other ways the earthquake may have had large scale effects on the planet.

[299], The aftershock on 7 April caused the loss of external power to Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant and Higashidori Nuclear Power Plant but backup generators were functional. The amplitude of the seismic wave is measured using the JMA magnitude scale, which is similar to Richter magnitude scale. [297] At Fukushima Daiichi and Daini, tsunami waves overtopped seawalls and destroyed diesel backup power systems, leading to severe problems at Fukushima Daiichi, including three large explosions and radioactive leakage. "Japanese Team Comes of Age, and Lifts a Country (Published 2011)", "What Have Religious Groups Done After 3.11? [201][202], The Geospatial Information Authority of Japan reported land subsidence based on the height of triangulation stations in the area measured by GPS as compared to their previous values from 14 April 2011. This is the fourth largest earthquake in the world and the largest in Japan since instrumental recordings began in 1900. The plant's three reactors automatically shut down without damage and all safety systems functioned as designed. [205], In Japan, the National Police Agency has confirmed 15,899 deaths,[206] 6,157 injured,[207] and 2,529 people missing[208] across twenty prefectures. To prevent under-reporting of tsunami heights, early quantitative observation data that are smaller than the expected amplitude will be overridden and the public will instead be told that the situation is under observation. [272] By 21 March 2011, the number of households in the north without electricity fell to 242,927. [36][141], Like the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, the damage by surging water, though much more localized, was far more deadly and destructive than the actual quake. Hoei earthquake, 1707. [101], The first sign international researchers had that the earthquake caused such a dramatic change in the Earth's rotation came from the United States Geological Survey which monitors Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) stations across the world. [43][44][45][46], The tsunami swept the Japanese mainland and killed over ten thousand people, mainly through drowning, though blunt trauma also caused many deaths. The Japanese Foreign Ministry confirmed the deaths of nineteen foreigners. [282][283][284], A 220,000-barrel (35,000 m3)-per-day[285] oil refinery of Cosmo Oil Company was set on fire by the quake at Ichihara, Chiba Prefecture, to the east of Tokyo. The heat build-up caused the generation of hydrogen gas. [318] Many radioactive hotspots were found outside the evacuation zone, including Tokyo. [42] More than 3,000 people were killed. [277], The expected electricity crisis in 2011 summer was successfully prevented thanks to all the setsuden measures. As a result, the communities in question are now more susceptible to flooding during high tides. Aftershocks decrease in frequency as a function of time following the mainshock. 3. [344], There were no derailments of Shinkansen bullet train services in and out of Tokyo, but their services were also suspended. A magnitude 7.4 Mw at 15:08 (JST), 7.9 Mw at 15:15 and a 7.7 Mw quake at 15:26 all occurred on 11 March.

[375], The aftermath of the twin disasters also left Japan's coastal cities and towns with nearly 25 million tons of debris. [68] Aftershocks follow Omori's law, which states that the rate of aftershocks declines with the reciprocal of the time since the main quake. Another moment conservation method, applied at a point on a major fault or plate boundary, also suggests that magnitude 9 events are required to explain observed displacement rates at least for the Tohoku area. [169] Also, at the slope of a nearby mountain from 400 metres (1,300 ft) away at Aneyoshi fishery port (姉吉漁港) of Omoe peninsula (重茂半島) in Miyako, Iwate, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology found estimated tsunami run up height of 38.9 metres (128 ft). [253] A total of 319 fishing ports, about 10% of Japan's fishing ports, were damaged in the disaster. A magnitude-9.0 earthquake struck off Japan’s northeastern coast.

On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 8.9 earthquake struck off the east coast of Honshu, Japan, about 130 kilometers (80 miles) east of Sendai.
