After Japan was struck was with a powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake a tsunami was reported to be heading toward the region where there was a nuclear disaster back in 2011.
Tsunami warning signals blared as people were warned that waves as high as 3 meters would be crashing onto shore.
Citizens reported that the waves were indeed big but nothing that the artificial tidal barriers couldn’t stop.
However government officials decided it would be wise to shut off the all the nuclear power plants near the coast where the Tsunami was predicted to hit, just in case. Better safe than sorry.
There were a few blackouts in the region, but other than that there seemed to be no other problems.
Jun Matsudo, Japan’s Minister for Disaster Management, stated that here have been no casualties or reports of serious injuries following the earthquake and tsunami and that officials are doing everything in their power to fix everything as soon as possible.
People were concerned that the events of 2011 might repeat itself when the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant spilled enormous amounts of radiation into the air and sea.
