Japan Nuclear Images
In this screenshot made from the Google Maps website provided Wednesday, March 27, 2013, by Google, showing stranded ships left as a testament to the power of the tsunami which hit the area, near a road in March, 2013, in Namie, Japan, a nuclear no-go zone where former residents have been unable to live since they fled from radioactive contamination from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant two years ago. Google Street View is giving the world a rare glimpse into Japan’s eerie ghost town, following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami which sparked a nuclear disaster that has left the area uninhabitable. The photo technology pieces together digital images captured by Google's camera-equipped vehicle and allows viewers to take virtual tours of locations around the world.
