The earthquake timeline
2.46pm in Japan, massive earthquake 9.0 magnitude unleashes a huge tsunami sweeping houses, boats, cars and people. In Tokyo, hundred miles from the quake building shakes violently. More than 50 aftershocks follow - seven at least near to 7.0 magnitude, the size of the quake which struck New Zealand in February.
Japan's government launches a massive rescue mission. More than a 1000 of people have died. US military vessels and aircraft carriers are sent, along with relief teams from South Korea, New Zealand and Australia. Japan requests help from UK. An explosion erupts in Fukushim Dai-ichi nuke plant. The operators at the nuke plant detected 8 times the normal radiation levels outside and 1000 times inside. Death toll rises to at least 1300 but thousands more are missing. More than 200,000 people living in shelters in 5 prefectures or states. More than 1 million households have no water. 4 million buildings are without power.
Japan's nuke safety agency says the cooling system of a third nuke reactor at Fukushima has failed. Experts constantly monitors the levels of radioactivity in the quarantined area. Around 170,000 people have been evaquated from a 12-mile radius around the Fukushima #1 nuke plant. Their Prime Minister said this is the country's worst crisis since the WW2. 160 people were taken to hospital after possibly being exposed to radiation while waiting to be evacuated.
Second hydrogen explosion reported. Six people injured. Japanese stocks nosedive as the huge cost of the disaster fuels fears about the country's economy. The Bank of Japan injected 15 trillion (£114.4 billion) in the money markets to stabilized it.
Dangerous levels of radiation leak from the Fukushima plant after a third explosion, in the #2 reactor. The Prime Minister urges those within the 19 miles of the area to stay indoors.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Japan. Hopefully the chaos ends soon. Insyaaallah.
