This is the VOA Special English Technology Report.
A powerful earthquake struck the northereastern coast of Japan at 2:46 pm local time on March,11.
Japan's * agency 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 4,000 * intensity meters in place throught Japan to measure earthquake activity.
These meters provide infomation within two minutes of an earthquake happening.
The infomation about the strength and the center of the earthquake can be learned within three minutes.
There are also concrete sea walls around much of the Japanese coastline.
But these measures proved no match for the powerful earthquake and tsunami.
** is a tsunami export with the Department of Civil&Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern Califonia in Los Angeles.
Japan is one of those most well-prepared countries on earth in terms of tsunami warning. They had a warning. I think what went wrong is that they had not anticipated the size of this event.
He says there are two reasons for this.
Japan has not had any event anywhere near as big as this one in the last 150 years and scientists have not expected such a large earthquake happening off the coastline of Japan.
The 9.0 magnitude earthquake was the fourth most powerful earthquake ever recorded worldwide.
It was also the worst earthquake ever to hit Japan.
The tsunami waves that followed were reported to have reached as high as 13 meters in some areas.
** says Japan's concrete sea walls were not built to handle such high waves.
The concrete seawalls in many places in Japan are about 10 meters, that's about 33 feet. In Sendai, they were about three meters, that's about 10 feet. 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
higher ground,people were offen have to travel for many kilometers.This can take more time than a fast travelling tsunami will permit.
This is especially true in cases like Japan where the center of the earthquake struck so close to the coastline.
The tsunami waves followed almost immediately.
Exports say early warning systems will continue to be limited by these facts until earthquakes and tsunimas can be predicated.
Amnd that's the VOA Special English Technology Report,witten by John Sins.

He says there are two reasons for this. Japan has not had any event anywhere near as big as this one in the last one hundred fifty years. And scientists had not expected such a large earthquake happening off the coast of Japan.
The nine point zero magnitude earthquake was the fourth most powerful earthquake ever recorded worldwide. It was also the worst earthquake ever to hit Japan. The tsunami waves that followed were reported to have reached as high as thirteen meters in some areas.
Costas Synolakis says Japan’s concrete sea walls were not built to handle such high waves.

This is the VOA Special English Technology Report.A powerful earthquake struck the northeastern coast of Japan at pm 2:46 local time on Mar 11. Japan's meteorological agency released its first tsunami warnings just 3 mins later. The country has one of the best earthquake early warning systems in the world.  There are more than 4,000 seismic intensity meters  in place throughout Japan to measure earthquake activity.These meters provide information within 2 mins of an earthquake happening, information about the strength and center of the earthquake can be learned within 3 mins. There are also concrete sea walls around the much of the Japanese coast line, but these measures proved no match for the  powerful earthquake and tsunami. Carster Seanoliks is a tsunami expert with the department of civil and environmental engineering at the university of Southern California in Los Angels. Japan is one of the most well-prepared countries on earth essential, you know the tsunami warnings. They had a warning, but I think what went wrong is they have not participated even the size of this event. He says there are 2 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 4th most powerful earthquake ever recorded worldwide. It was also the worst earthquake ever to hit Japan. The tsunami waves that followed were reported to have reached as high as 13m in some areas. CL says Japan's concrete sea walls were not built to handle such high waves. The concrete sea walls in many places in Japan about 10m that's about 33 feet. In the Sendail, there were about 3m that's about 10 feet. So that's shows you at least in that area they were not expecting such size of a wave. A tsunami wave can travel as fast as 800 km per hour. To get a higher ground people would often have to travel for many km this can take more time than a fast travelling tsunami will permit. This is especially true in cases like Japan where the center of earthquake struck so close to the coast line. The tsunami waves followed almost immediately.
