If you scroll over each picture on the link below, it shows each area before the quake/tsunami and after. The amount of damage done is incredible. Entire cities were wiped out, so they are nearly bare earth again.
It is going to take the Japanese many years to recover and I read there is nearly a 99% chance an earthquake up to 7.9 magnitude is expected in the same place within the next 30 years. That same article was also saying that another highly powerful earthquake is extremely likely within the next year. It had something to do, with how the earth shifts and the patterns it has when earthquakes occur. I’ll look for the article to link to.
