This is the VOA Special English Technology Report.
A powerful earthquake struck the northeastern coast of Japan at 2:46pm local time on March 11th. Japan's Meterological angency released its first tsunami warnings just three minutes later. The country has one of the best earthquake early warning systems in the world. There are more than 4000 Seismic Intensity Meters in place throughout Japan to measure earthquake activity. This meters provide information within two minute of an earthquake happening. Information  about the stress and the centre of the earthquake can be learned within three minutes. There are also concrete sea walls around much of the Japanese coast line, but these measures proved no match for the powerful earthquake and tsunami.
Costas S## is a tsunami expert with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Japan is one of the well prepared countries on the earth in terms of tsunami warnings. They had a warning that I think what went wrong is that they had no anticipated the size of this event.
He says there two reasons for this. Japan has not had any event anywhere near as big as this one in the last 150 years and scientists had not expected such a large earthquake happening of the coast of Japan.
The 9.0 magnitude earthquake was the fourth most powerful earthquake ever recorded worldwild it was also the worst earthquake ever to hit Japan. The tsunami waves that followed were reported to have reached as high as 30 meters in some areas. Costas S## says Japan's concrete sea walls were not built to handle such high waves.
The concrete sea walls in many places in Japan are about 10 meters, that's about 33 feet. In Sendai, they were about 3 meters, thats about 10 feets. So that shows you that at least in that area they were not expecting such a sizeable wave because they would have built a higher seawall.
A tsunami wave can travel as fast as 800 kilometers per hour. To get to higher ground, people was often have to travel for many kilometers. This can take more time than the fast traveling tsunami will permit. This is especially true in cases like Japan, where the centre of the earthquake struke so close to the coast line. The tsunami waves followed almost immediately.
Experts say early warning systems will continue to be limited by these facts until earthquakes and tsunamis can be predicted.
And that is the VOA Special English Technology Report written by Jone S##.

This is the VOA special English technologic report. A powerful earthquake struck the northeastern coast of Japan at 2:46 pm local time on March eleventh. Japan’s Meteorological Agency released its first tsunami warnings just three minutes later. The country has one of best earthquake early warning systems in the world. There are more 4000 Seismic Intensity Miters in place throughout Japan to measure earthquake activity. There miters provide information within two minutes of an earthquake happening. Information about the strength and the center of the earthquake can be learnt within three minutes. There are also concrete see walls around much of the Japanese coast line. But these measures provide no march for the powerful earthquake and tsunami.  
* is a tsunami expert with a Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of southern California in Los Angeles. “Japan is one of most well prepared countries on earth especial in tsunami warnings. They had the warning. I think what was wrong is that they had not anticipated the size of the tsunami.”
He says there are two reasons for this. Japan has not had any event any when near as big as this one in the last 150 years. And scientists had not expected such a large earthquake happening of the coast of Japan. The nine point zero magnitude earthquake was the forth most powerful earthquake ever recorded world-wide. It was also the worst earthquake ever to hit Japan. The tsunami waves that followed were reported to have reached as high as thirteen miters in some areas.
* says Japan’s concrete sea walls were not built to handle such high waves. “The concrete sea walls in many places in Japan are about ten miters or about thirty-three feet. In the Sendai there were about three miters or about ten feet. That shows you that at least in that area they were not expecting such a size of wave.”
A tsunami wave can travel as fast as 800 kilo-miles per hour. To get a higher ground, people would often have to travel for many kilo-miters. This can take more time than a fast traveling tsunami will permit. This is especially true in cases like Japan where the center of the earthquake struck so close to the coast line. The tsunami waves followed almost immediately. Experts say early warning systems will continue to be limited by these facts until earthquakes and tsunamis and be predicted.
