The most unfortunate earthquake that occurred on Friday the 11th of March 2011 in Japan was the strongest earthquake in recorded history to hit Japan as per U.S. Geologic Survey records that date to 1900. The world's largest recorded quake took place in Chile on May 22, 1960, with a magnitude of 9.5.

The official death toll in Japan on this count reported at six hundred eighty nine with six hundred thirty nine missing whereas the actual toll is thought to be much higher, with Japanese public broadcaster NHK reporting more than nine hund...red dead and Kyodo News Agency saying the death toll could top one thousand eight hundreds. The police agency claimed that nearly one thousand six hundred people had been injured.The number of death in Japan due to this severe earthquake is expected to rise as rescuers reach more hard-hit areas. In one coastal town alone -- Minamisanriku, in Myagi Prefecture -- some near\ly ten thousand people, half the town's population, were unaccounted for, as per report reaching us. This earthquake was centered about one hundred thirty kilometers from Sendai. The city, with a population of about a million, is located in a farming region already battling youth population losses to big cities, leaving aging residents struggling to keep up with the global economy. While there was little visible damage in that city, the devastation -- most of it caused by the tsunami, which reached several miles inland -- was readily apparent in coastal areas. In the city of Shirakawa, south of Sendai, rescuers dug through rubble with shovels to try to reach thirteen neighbors trapped when the earth opened up and swallowed their homes. The family friends and relatives had kept standing in the cold, with temperatures near freezing overnight, quietly watching, praying and waiting. Many had wept and cried on demise of their near and dear ones. In other affected areas, military choppers plucked people from rooftops. In some cases, rescuers trudged in muddy water, carrying survivors on their backs. Weary, mud-spattered residents wandered through streets filled with crumpled cars and other debris presented a deserted & frightened look. Meanwhile, millions more around Japan who were found dealing with other repercussions of Friday's earth quake. The quake disrupted rail service and affected air travel. Flight cancellations left at least twenty three thousands people stranded in two Tokyo airports though departing and arriving flights resumed on Saturday the12th of March 2011 Limited rail service also was back in operation on this day. Tokyo’s Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea will close for ten days. Six million households, more than 10% of the total in Japan, were without electricity as of Saturday, Just to conserve power prompted decisions to turn off lights on the Saturday at a host of landmarks all around Japan -- some of them hundreds of miles from the main quake's epicenter, like the Tsutenkaku Tower in Osaka, Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo, and Bay Bridge in Yokohama.On request received fro the Japanese Govt,.the U.S. Agency for International Development has sent two search and rescue teams, from Virginia and California. Those teams, of about one hundred fifty people and twelve rescue dogs trained to find survivors, were expected to arrive this morning and immediately begin working alongside Japanese and international teams. Nearly forty eight other countries and the European Union also have offered relief to Japan, and supplies and personnel are already on the way to affected areas of Japan The earth quake was the latest in a series around Japan last week. On Wednesday, the 9th of March 2011 a 7.2-magnitude earthquake had struck off the coast of Honshu, The next day on early Thursday that is on March 10, 2011 an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 struck off the same coast. The next day on Friday ,the 11th of March 2011 quake was the strongest earthquake in recorded history to hit Japan that date to 1900Let us join to condole untimely death of all those who have lost their lives in Japan and pray to rest their soul in heavenly abode and wish all those injured to get well soon who are going under treatment in Japan .Our greatest sympathies are with the Japanese people as whole at this juncture of deep crisis. We have full faith in the wisdom and hard work of Japanese people as whole and sincerely hope that they will overcome all their difficulties soon in rebuilding worn parts of Japan in the most beautiful and scientific manner .At this moment , our best of prayers are with Lord Buddha for well-being of all living –being of Japan to have His bliss to face the natural calamities with restraint and courage with malice to none!
