Summary, etc.:
"On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake rocked the northeast coast of Japan. The fourth largest ever measured, the Great Tohoku Earthquake released more energy than a nuclear bomb. It triggered a tsunami that pummeled the shoreline, killing tens of thousands, and crippled a nuclear power plant in Fukushima. For six days, employees at the plant struggled to prevent a meltdown, and disaster workers scoured the surrounding area for survivors. Meltdown tells the harrowing story of the 2011 Fukushima power plant disaster, examining the science behind the catastrophe--and the courage and tenacity of the people who experienced an unprecedented trifecta of destruction"--Dust jacket.
