Earthquake: Map of Japan to explain where you are

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-Map-of-Japan" This map of Japan, based on one posted by Kim Horne, should help explain where you are in relation to the earthquakes and tsunami.

The earthquake struck close to the yellow region (4), Miyagi, containing the city of Sendai, which is about 300 km north of Tokyo. The green areas of Kanto were also badly shaken and contain Tokyo (13) and Yokohama (14), as were part of the light blue areas, however, the serious damage is concentrated in the yellow areas closest to the coast on the right.

The two nuclear power stations that are having serious problems are in Fukushima, on the coast.

See our Earthquake Summary for more information.

Wikipedia also has a strong section on the earthquake.
