The tsunami formed by
earthquakes must occur

Hot spot-part of the mantle and always stay in the same
Hot spots are places within the mantle where rocks melt to general
magma.And the it will have the heat to push the magma up that create
the hot spot volcano.
Ring of Fire-is no longer active of the volcano.
The Ring of Fire is a ring of volcanoes around the Pacific Ocean that
result from subduction of oceanic plates beneath lighter continental
plates.And it always happen in Japan.In addition,if it erupts,it will cause
the volcanic eruptions under the ocean.
Earthquake in Japan
It happened at 13:46 on March 11, 2011.It was in
Miyagi Prefecture in northeastern Japan region. It was
really terrible and the magnitude is 9.0 earthquake. It
had big consequences. For example the earthquake has
caused 14,063 people were killed,13,691 were missing.
Moreover, it had 9.0 earthquake caused a tsunami
about 10 meters high, and caused nuclear power plant
explosion. It was the highest in the world in the history
of the observed magnitude earthquake. On the other
hand, it damages many buildings and effect the
economic conditions. That was made Japan had a big
accident for this that make people feel scared.
The effect of the earthquake
Tsunami in Japan
In this case it shows the tsunami caused by the
earthquake. This earthquake, not only hit the
Japanese homeland, hit the Japanese economy, but
also on the Japanese caused the tsunami. Tsunami
disaster has caused 3373 deaths and 15,000 people
missing. The big effect of this is Nuclear and
nuclear radiation leak. There caused the people
might got the diseases from the radiation
explosion. It is really harmful, it is not just for
Japan, it should harm all over the world.
