There are few things more powerful than mother nature. And when she decides to throw a knock-out punch, it's best to try and dodge it.
Destroyed vehicles lie near the rubble after the earthquake and tsunami devastated the area on March 16, 2011 in Minamisanriku, Japan. The 9.0 magnitude strong earthquake struck offshore on March 11 at 2:46pm local time, triggering a tsunami wave of up to ten metres which engulfed large parts of north-eastern Japan. The death toll continues to rise and could well reach 10,000 in a tragedy not seen since World War II in Japan.
