Image Caption: ISS026-E-033648 (13 March 2011) --- From 220 miles above Japan, an Expedition 26 crew member onboard the International Space Station took this 800mm view of Sendai, and the coast mostly north on March 13. Sunglint helps to highlight the flood waters over the land, flowing out the rivers, plus the heavy oils swirling on the surface with the currents.
An earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit Japan on March 11.
