Abstract : On March 11 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck Northeastern Japan followed shortly after by a powerful tsunami. The disaster caused devastating damage along the Pacific coastline and more than 20,000 people were declared killed, inured or missing. Through this tragedy of the Great East Japan Earthquake (hereafter the 3/11 Earthquake), there are many important lessons on disaster preparedness and relief that can be learned: the implementation of such lessons is an important way to ensure that the victims of the disaster did not lose their lives in vain.
