How the Japanese Cleared up Debris after Quake and Tsunami
It has been hardly six months since the killer quake and tsunami devastated Japan on March 11, 2011. But the Japanese spirit made things different in this short span of time – the country has been praised for its efforts to clear up debris.
Wrecks cluttered across the coastal regions of the country following the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and the massive tsunami which the quake triggered. Pictures of a huge ship resting on a roof flashed across the Web and other media, depicting enormity of nature’s fury on March 11.
Japan is striving to recover from the aftermath of the disaster, including nuclear radiation releases around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, but the country has surely made a strong progress in cleaning up the debris.
