It started as a very powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 8.9
Followed by a Tsunami
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0This anime was shown a few seasons ago (Last year I think). I watched the first episode of it and I really sympathize with the Japanese.
The premise of the story is the 70% or higher possibility that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake will occur in Tokyo in the next 30 years. The story depicts what would happen if a 8.0 earthquake tooks place. The story will center on Mirai, a middle school freshman girl who goes to Tokyo's artificial Odaiba Island for a robot exhibition with her brother Yuuki at the start of summer vacation. A powerful tremor emanates from an ocean trench, the famed Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge crumble and fall"
"i wonder if somewhere in japan right now theres a mirai and yuki trying to back home."-gouki2005
I haven't had a complete grasp of the situation yet, but as far as I know the Tokyo tower only suffered a few cracks and a bent tip.

The devastation was worst than I imagined... I wish there was something I could do to help all those people out.
