I would really like to know the truth of anything around here.
One thing I still don't quite understand is how so MANY people lost their lives in a society where they are trained all the way from kids on what to do to avoid a tsunami immediately after a quake.

One thing I still don't quite understand is how so MANY people lost their lives in a society where they are trained all the way from kids on what to do to avoid a tsunami immediately after a quake. 28,000+ ? The vast majority lost their lives in the tsunami waves. And from the videos you can see people hanging around when the sirens were going off. I just don't get it...After a quake that huge? I am STILL trying to figure that one out... I guess it must be testament to just how unprecedented the effects would be from such a massive quake. Only thing I can figure.
The vast majority of deaths in the March 11th disaster were caused by the tsunami and most of the victims were seniors.
The National Police Agency says 92 percent of deaths in last month's massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami were due to drowning, and 2 in 3 of the dead were over 60 years old.
(Reuters) - A 10-metre tsunami warning was issued to most of the Pacific coast of the main island of Honshu following Friday's earthquake which struck off the north coast with a magnitude of 8.8, broadcaster NHK reported.
The latest research on the March 11 tsunami that slammed into Ofunato city in Iwate Prefecture, northern Japan shows that it was nearly 30 meters high.
A joint research team from Yokohama National University and University of Tokyo surveying the Ofunato city shoreline made the discovery.
They found fishing equipment scattered on the high cliff of the city's Ryori Bay and have determined the tsunami reached as high as 29.6 meters.
