The quake measured nine on the Richter scale, and was devastating for the area, causing a Tsunami.

160,000 people were forced to flee their homes after the explosion due to radiation concerns, with photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski visiting the area and documenting the aftermath.

He spoke to the Daily Mail, and claimed:
