The 2011 Sendai disaster was a series of events that took place in Sendai, Japan.

The disaster began with a magnitude 9.0 earthquake 130 kilometers off Japan's eastern coast, at a depth of 32 kilometers, on 2011-03-11. The earthquake triggered a tsunami with waves of up to 10 meters, some of which traveled as far as 10 kilometers inland.

These combined events in turn caused extensive damage and radiation leakage damage at the two Fukushima nuclear power plants.
