DISASTER IN JAPAN: THE RAMPAGE OF THE ELEMENTS AND THE MISCALCULATIONS OF PEOPLE
The upcoming earthquake of unprecedented destructive power in Japan was thought of for a long time: at least half a century ago. But it did not happen exactly where it was most feared, and it did not bring exactly the disasters that were first prepared for.

It is also not the first time that the Japanese face tsunamis and typhoons (typhoon - big wind). These very words of Japanese origin have entered many languages of the world. Twice a typhoon saved the country in the XIII century. from the naval armadas of the Mongol Kublai Khan. Those tsunamis earned the beautiful name of" divine wind " - kamikaze. The current tsunami is one of those that have been called "killer tsunamis".
