Just FYI
March 11, 2011 Japan experienced one of the strongest earthquakes in recent history, a 9.1, causing sever damage, and followed
by a Tsunami that reached 10-20 meters in areas, killing over 18,000 people, and causing widespsread damage, and causing a meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami

a number of towns no longer exist, litrally wiped off the land by the Tsunami.
Thousands of people were "evacuated" in the area of Fukoshima due to radiation. They still cannot come back.

some iconic and frightening images:







this ship is several miles inland, and sitting on a house


same ship from the front




another



flood then fires


All because they thought the Tsunami walls were "high enough". but actually 5 - 10 meters too low.

This Tsunami uncovered several giant bolders that had inscriptions saying "do not build lower than this" ....

Hundreds, if not Thousands of students survived by climbing hills *in different areas*  because several students kept screaming
"Its a Tsunami! run Higher! run higher!"  even tho teachers said they were fine.

What did we learn on the show todya, Craig?
- remember history, or be doomed to repeat it.
- always question your teacher
