Last week, an undersea earthquake hit Japan’s northern coast, luckily no serious damage or any fatalities have been reported. According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), the 7.0-magnitude quake hit offshore, 100km southeast of Russia‘s Kuril Islands.
The country has since been experiencing light earthquakes, which range from 3.2 to 5.5 in magnitude, for the past several days with a 5.2 magnitude earthquake recorded just off the coast of the volatile Fukushima Prefecture.
Since the latest bout of earthquakes, a video has surfaced online which captured the 2011 Great East earthquake of Japan. The terrifying video was taken at Sendai Airport in the city of Natori, Miyagi during the 9.0 magnitude quake which triggered a powerful tsunami with waves that may have reached heights of up to 40.5 meters and travelled at 700 km/h for up to 10 km inland.
