Powerful Photos from Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

In the aftermath of an 8.9 earthquake that devastated Japan, unbelievable images have surfaced from this terrible tragedy.  Even though the earthquake was the most powerful one on record in Japan, it was the subsequent tsunami that took the most lives and destroyed the most property.  These photos demonstrate the power and ferocity of this heart-wrenching calamity.
