Remembering the Tohoko Earthquake

Two weeks ago the city of Napa (50 miles away) was hit with a M6.0 earthquake which damaged buildings and injured many people.  I recalled the earthquake in northern Japan 3 years ago 
and tried to imagine the feeling of a magnitude 9.0 quake, which means it was 1000 times as powerful. In the photo below, Tendai priests gathered at that time to say prayers for the 20,000 people lost. Beyond that, the world is still suffering from the nuclear power plant overwhelmed and destroyed by the massive Tsunami.
