UNBELIEVABLE PHOTOS OF BOATS AFTER JAPAN’S EARTHQUAKE 2011

On March 11, 2011, a magnitude-9 earthquake shook northeastern Japan, unleashing a savage tsunami. As of February 2017, there were still about 150,000 evacuees who lost their homes; 50,000 of them were still living in temporary housing, Japan's Reconstruction Agency said.

Here are unbelievable pictures of boats and ships swept ashore by the tsunami.
