    DescriptionOn 11 March 2011, Japan's most powerful earthquake on record triggered a tsunami, which then caused a meltdown at a nuclear power plant. It wiped entire towns off the map and forced Fukushima’s residents from their homes as radiation leaked from the plant.

    The government estimates the disaster could cost nearly $200bn, and the clean-up may take until 2051. Today the prefecture of Fukushima is still dealing with the aftermath of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.

    What happened that day, and what was it like for the people who lived through it? The BBC’s Tui McLean explains how the triple disaster unfolded.

    DescriptionThe Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster began 10 years ago today, marking one of the most serious nuclear accidents in history.

    The disaster was deemed to be a level 7 incident on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale—the highest number possible.

    It was the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986, and it took place amid an earthquake and tsunami that, aside from the nuclear incident, caused nearly 20,000 deaths.
