Storyboard Text

  • On the morning of March 11th, 2011, a 9.0 earthquake struck Japan.
  • The quake caused a tsunami hit Fukishima's Nuclear Power Plant that same day.  
  • The flooding water caused the reactors at the plants to shut down, and the coolers to shut off. 
  • The reactors began to overheat, because the water used to keep the reactors cool began to boil and evaporate. 
  • On march 12th, 2011, Reactor #1 blew up, and 3 more soon also exploded within the next few days.
  • Hundreds of thousands of people were forced to evacuate due to leaked radiation from the explosions. The last of the evacuation orders were finally lifted 6 years later, in March 2017.
