Japanese coast – before and after

japan eathquakeby NASA Goddard Photo and Video

Amazing picture from NASA. The top one was taken on March 12 while the bottom was taken February 26. You can see large sections in the middle that are still under water, apparently because the water can not return to the sea,

And look at the region around the red dot. That coast is very different today and any towns located there would be devastated. The light blue is supposed to be snow, which seems much more prevalent in the North part than before. Not good.

The original picture has some added details such as cities, etc.
