On a calm afternoon in March 2011, a force-nine earthquake jolted
the Pacific Ocean seabed east of Japan. Forty minutes later, a
tsunami 21 meters high crashed onto the coast of Fukushima, Miyagi,
and Iwate prefectures. Towns collapsed, villages were destroyed,
and 16,000 people were swept away. The earthquake and tsunami also
resulted in another terrifying calamity OCo explosions and
meltdowns at a nuclear plant near the city of Fukushima. Combining
interviews, research, and analysis, this book reveals the extent of
the disasterOCOs consequences: the ruinous compensation claims
faced by electricity supplier TEPCO; the complete shutdown of
JapanOCOs nuclear reactors; and the psychological impact on those
who, unable to return to their farms and villages, may become
permanent nuclear refugees."
