Before and After images of Tsunami Effects

Picture 1
Satellite photos have been released showing the devastation caused by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

The image at the top is an aerial photo of Fujitsuka near Sendai before the quake.

The tsunami that followed destroyed almost everything in its path, with many homes flattened, as the bottom photo shows.

Picture 2
It is a similar picture in the nearby city of Natori. The top image is how it looked before.

The bottom photo taken on Saturday shows a devastating scene.

Picture 3
Towns on the coast bore the brunt of the tsunami's powerful waves. The top picture shows Yagawahama in Miyagi state before Friday, and the bottom one is after they hit.

Picture 4
This is Kashima, which is in Fukushima state. The impact of the tsunami on the town is clear in the bottom photo, which shows a large part of the area completely flooded.
