Disaster of Fukushima I Nuclear Power Station - Unit 2
Accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant / Unit 2 after a tsunami hit

On March 11, 2011, Japan hit an extraordinarily strong earthquake, which subsequently triggered tsunami waves of up to 39 meters high. As a result of the natural disaster, there was a significant devastation of large coastal areas. The catastrophe was so devastating that it had destroyed entire cities, damaged the infrastructure, and lost all the contact of the affected areas with the rest of the world.
Four nuclear power plants (total 11 reactors) were hit. The most extensive harm was at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Station (Fukushima Daiichi) owned by TEPCO. The accident at the Fukushima I was rated 7 on the INES scale, the higher the grade does not already have. The highest level was granted only to the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986.
On the timeline, we follow a detailed description of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Station Unit 2 after the earthquake and the later tsunami wave. You can compare the timeline with Fukushima-Unit 1 timeline, too.
