Japan tsunami two years on: Before and after pictures

Japan tsunami two years on: Before and after pictures

11 March 2013

Japan is observing today the second anniversary of the March 11, 2011,

disaster that killed more than 19,000 people. Homes were reduced to

rubble, cars tossed about like toys and boats flung from the sea into

streets and onto roofs. The ocean's fury, and the earthquake that

preceded it, left around 19,000 people dead and hundreds of thousands

homeless. In the last 24 months, substantial progress has been made in

rebuilding lives and infrastructure, but much remains unfinished. This

new set of before-and-after photographs captures the rebuilding work and

efforts to return to normality.
