Tsunami : les Américains se préparent à l'arrivée des débris - France Info

Tsunami : les Américains se préparent à l’arrivée des débris - France Info

Une île grande comme la France, composée d’objets de toutes les tailles, flotte au milieu du Pacifique nord. Il s’agit essentiellement des déchets que le tsunami de mars 2011 au Japon a emportés au large. Une île dont la progression est suivie de près par l’agence nationale océanique et atmosphérique américaine.

Depuis trois ans, l’agence nationale océanique et atmosphérique américaine suit la dérive de cette île de déchets dans l’océan.

La NOAA a rendu un rapport la semaine dernière et s’inquiète maintenant de l’arrivée massive de ces débris en tout genre sur la côte ouest des Etats-Unis.

What can we say about the short-term seismic future for Japan and the region?

When we look at other magnitude 9s, they have many aftershocks. The average magnitude 9 has one magnitude 8. And there was one magnitude 8 that was hidden in the main earthquake data. They will have 10 magnitude 7s, 100 magnitude 6s and so on. That's the typical sequence.

April 07 2011 Erbeben der Stärke 7.1 vor der Küste Japans

Um 16:16 Uhr gab es wieder ein schweres Erdbeben vor Sendai, in dem Gebiet wo es schon so viele Erdbeben gab. Es sah erst aus als würden die Erdbeben, die es ohne Unterbrechung jeden Tag vor der Küste Japans gab so langsam aufhören, doch dies war nur ein Trugschluss. Das USGS meldet eine 7.1 auf der Richterskala. Das Erdbeben war direkt vor der nahen Küste.

Vor Sendai gab es wieder ein kräftiges Erdbeben. Die letzten Tage (blau) wurde es ruhiger. Dann das jetzt.
Sendai und Fukushima sind direkt im näheren Umfeld des Erdbeben gewesen.

This is Hideaki Akaiwa. When the Tsunami hit his home town of Ishinomaki, Hideaki was at work. Realising his wife was trapped in their home, he ignored the advice of professionals, who told him to wait for the army to arrive to provide search and rescue.

Instead he found some scuba gear, jumped in the raging torrent - dodging cars, houses and other debris being dragged around by the powerful current, any of which could have killed him instantly - and navigated the now submerged streets in pitch dark, freezing water until he found his house. Swimming inside, he discovered his wife alive on the upper level with only a small amount of breathing room, and sharing his resperator, pulled her out to safety.

If he had waited for the army, his wife of 20 years would be dead.

Oh, and if that’s not enough badassery for one lifetime, Hideaki realised his mother was also unaccounted for, so jumped back in the water and managed to save her life also. Since then Hideaki enters the water everyday on a one man search and rescue mission, saving countless lives and proving that two natural disasters in a single day, and insurmountable odds can’t stand in the way of love. This man is my hero.

Japan: Citizen Videos of the Earthquake

Written by Solana Larsen

This post is part of our special coverage on the Japan Earthquake 2011.

One has to admire a person with the wits to keep a video camera turned on while the ground is shaking beneath them. Citizen videos recorded Friday, March 11 during the earthquake and tsunami that caused mass devastation in many parts of Japan are all over YouTube. Among the many shared online, here are just a few.

The day of the big quake

Staffers at a supermarket in Tokyo hold up the shelves during a quake that lasted longer than a minute.

As the earthquake shakes a house, the people inside rush to the street.

These people watch a tsunami engulf Iioka Port in Chiba Prefecture from higher ground.

At Shinjuku station in Tokyo, on March 11, these were people who couldn't get home after the quake.

Two days later

After the quake, a man surveyed the damage in Iioka, Chiba Prefecture on March 13th and said: “It's like the wave passed through town.”
