This has been a year of incredible global natural disasters: destructive earthquakes and tsunamis, huge forest fires, and damaging tornadoes ripping through the northeast. No part of the world is immune to such events. Japan’s Killer Quake examines one of the worst crisis to hit Japan since World War II. This video can help students understand just how the people of Japan’s coastal villages were impacted by the quake and subsequent tsunami. The video asks what can be done to anticipate and protect against such disasters, or is it impractical to design ahead for such events. The NOVA-series video runs 60 minutes and is I.D. 2094.
