  • Five years ago on this March 11th, Japan was hit by a tragic trifecta: an earthquake, tsunami...

  • and then a nuclear meltdown.

  • Bells rang all across Japan... at 2:46 p.m. local time, the exact moment the 9-point-oh

  • quake was detected. People across the country took a moment of

  • silence... bowed their heads as a mark of respect for the nearly 20-thousand people

  • who died that day. The Japanese government also marked the fifth

  • anniversary in a national ceremony along with residents from the affected regions.

  • On March 11th, 2011 the powerful offshore earthquake spawned a monster tsunami... along

  • the country's northeastern coast and sparked the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl

  • in 1986.
