Earthquake Photos of Japan

At first, it is was difficult to locate good photographs of the recent Japan earthquake and the tsunami aftermath. Today, however, powerful photographs blanket the web. Regardless, I wanted to post a few images which moved me the most and seem to express the devastation best. I've searched the web and made a compilation of earthquake disaster photographs here for you. Where credit was offered, I have listed it below each image.

After Fridays calamitous 8.9 earthquake, a tsunami was triggered, which submerged the town of Minamisanriku. 

Among the debris, vehicles and planes can be seen, which were swept away by the devastating tsunami. 

In Sendian, northern Japan, frames engulf an industrial area. 

At a completely destroyed building in Minamisanrikucho Miyagi, Japan's Air Defense Force helicopter attempts to make landing among the carnage. 

In Sendai, which lies in the northern Japan, cargo containers are strewn about.

Walking the muddy roads of Natori city, Japanese people evacuate to shelters. 

In Tagajo City, residents are evacuated with the help of soldiers who pull a boat across floodwater.

A 8.9 magnitude earthquake battered the easter coast of Japan.The 13 foot high tsunami was unleashed as a result of the earthquake which swept buildings, cars, boats, and debris inland.
