Sendai 3D

Sendai  is the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, and the largest city in the Tōhoku Region.

On 11 March 2011, coastal areas of the city suffered catastrophic damage from a magnitude 9.0 offshore earthquake and the tsunami that it caused.
Although not much damage occurred in the city center, major damage was reported in the coastal areas including Sendai Airport. The tsunami reportedly reached as far as Wakabayashi Ward Office, 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) from the coastline.

The images here were processed by Chelys’ new raw data processor. The main image shows Sendai and its coastal areas, one detail image offers a 3D view of the area, and the other shows the location of a nuclear power plant.
