Here's a great link with a feature to see aerial views of the Japanese coast before the earthquakes. Then you can "sweep" across the photo to see the devastation wrought by the recent tsunamis.>>>>>

ABC News - Japan Earthquake: before and after - Part 2


Truly astounding damage better visualized with this feature.

Tragic. Wish I knew how to help.... I like that sweep feature on those photos--I spent some time going back and forth.

Here's the quakemap for Japan. Let the clock run up to 1400 hours (takes only a few seconds) where the quakes begin.

I thought that feature was cool as well...it's the best way to actually see how damaging the tsunamis were. It is a terrible situation and I pray the country can recover relatively quickly from this disaster.

Thanx for the additional link! .

Holy cow I hadn't realized how active the area was after the major quake! That's a LOT of earthquakes, and a lot of them were still pretty strong!

Last time I heard there were over 300 significant aftershocks.
