Why Japan’s tsunami could be the biggest ever

In an unprecedented move, a powerful earthquake has struck off Japan’s northeast coast.

The quake has shaken the region for more than a day, leaving a tsunami measuring 10 metres (33 feet) high sweeping across the country, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

“The tsunami is very strong,” said Masahiro Ogasawara, a seismologist at the National Institute of Seismology in Kyoto.

“It’s an enormous tsunami.”

The earthquake, which has not been officially confirmed, comes as the country prepares to hold its annual earthquake drills.

Japan is one of several countries that are considering the possibility of using military exercises to prepare for the potential threat of a massive earthquake.

It was only a matter of time before the country was ready, as Japan is prone to major earthquakes.

“We are considering preparing for the possibility that the tsunami may hit us,” Mr Ogaswara said.

“If we are not prepared, the chances of a tsunami being triggered would be high.”

The quake is the biggest in the world since the 1989 quake that devastated parts of Japan and left a tsunami of around 30 metres high.

It has already caused the evacuation of 1.8 million people, including more than 200,000 in coastal areas.

The death toll is likely to rise as the tsunami passes inland, with hundreds of people feared trapped on the coast.

It is unclear how long the quake will remain a threat.

It took about two hours for the earthquake to reach the coast, with waves hitting the Pacific and Pacific Ocean.

In its aftermath, residents of coastal areas were advised to take precautions as they await evacuation orders.

“There are no reports of injuries,” said Tomoyuki Nishino, a spokesman for Japan’s Meteorological Service.

“I have been told the situation is not serious and that there are no tsunami warnings.”

It is the first quake of magnitude 3.0 or higher in the last 200 years.

The tsunami has also damaged the coastal city of Yokohama, which is located some 1,500 kilometres (930 miles) from the epicentre.

Residents of the city said they felt the quake in their homes as they woke up.

“Everyone in our city is feeling the earthquake,” a local resident, Tomoki Yone, told the Associated Press news agency.

“Our homes are shaking and our windows are shaking.

We heard a big explosion.”

The US Geological Survey said that tsunami-strength waves would be felt in the Pacific Ocean, including Hawaii, Alaska and British Columbia, which sits between Japan and Australia.

“Large waves may reach Hawaii, including the northern island of Oahu,” the USGS said in a statement.

The USGS added that the US Pacific Northwest was not at risk from the tsunami.

“These large waves could be more damaging to the area than the tsunami, as the depth of the waves would make it more difficult for the waves to move through the land and into the sea,” the agency said.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said in televised comments that the government was working hard to prepare.

“What is more important, is that the people who are living in this tsunami zone are able to return home,” Mr Noda told reporters.

“People are working hard so that they can go back to their homes safely.”

The United Nations said that nearly 300,000 people had been evacuated from tsunami-hit areas.

“At the moment, our priority is to help the people and the disaster management workers to bring them back safely,” United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in Geneva.
