Fukushima in Photos: Remembering the Japan Disaster

March 11, 2012 marks the one year anniversary of disaster and devastation in Fukushima, Japan. As the world looked on in horror, a massive 9.0 earthquake and 30 to 50 foot tsunami killed tens of thousands of people in Japan and caused the worst nuclear accident the world has seen since Chernobyl. Today radiation still leaks from the now-closed Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant and residents of the area fear for their health and safety. Today we look back at the disaster, mourn for those lost and hope for a return to normalcy and safety for all who were affected by this tragedy – although the effects of this triple disaster will be felt for decades.
