No country prepares for earthquakes more than Japan (they get hit with a lot of them), but nothing could have prepared them for an earthquake this size.

It wasn't the earthquake that caused most damage, but the tsunami that followed it. Video footage of the wave working its way inland is just unbelievable. The mess it leaves behind is also incalculable.

Not to mention the possible meltdown and radioactive disaster that might happen in various power plants. Japan was struck badly...

well they also prepare for tsunami's. In one of the latest videosof the tsunami you can see a storm barrier like the ones we have in our port Antwerp and you see the tsunami simply roll over it and still have enough power to swipe away everything in its path.
