Japan and its Natural Disasters

Japan has suffered the worst of natural disasters. The 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit. Or the 2004 earthquake and tsunami. Not only tsunamis and earthquakes but they have had typhoons, volcanic eruptions any etc. Can you guess how much damage they caused and the amount it cost to repair everything?

The 2011 earthquake that hit Tōhoku and spread over 200 miles. The earthquake itself reached up to a magnitude of 9.1. One of the biggest in the world. This then caused the 133 foot or 40.5 wave that caused damage over Miyako, Iwate and Tōhoku. Nearly 16,000 people died, over 6000 injured and about 2500 went missing.

Another catastrophe was Typhoon Muifa. This typhoon occurred on the 27th of July to the 15th of August. The typhoon was deadly as it had a speed of 259 Kmph. That's the speed of a supercar. The typhoon caused damage to Japan, Russia, North and South Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan and Micronesia. 22 people died from this typhoon.

Lastly the eruption of Mount Sakurajima. The eruption caused black smoke that rose over 5000 meters into the air. This smoke spread over a one mile radius. The area was restricted. Lightning bolts were captured sparking around the smoke.

Japan is a lovely place to visit but beware of the dangers that can happen.

In week two Te Ngahere started to write reports. I finished my first one so I started my second one about natural disasters in Japan. My focuses were to use topic sentence, complex sentences and one idea in a paragraph.
