*** On 11 March 2011, a 9.0 earthquake and a subsequent major tsunami hit Sendai, without causing much damage in the center. In other areas however, especially on the coastal area including Sendai Airport major damage was reported. The tsunami reportedly reached as far as Wakabayashi Ward Office, 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) from the coastline. Hundreds were killed, and countless more were injured and/or made homeless.
Sendai's port was heavily damaged and temporarily closed. The port reopened on 16 April 2011***
