Photos of tsunami striking Japanese nuclear plant

Photos of the recent Japanese tsunami battering the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant have been released by TEPCO, the Japanese power company that runs the stricken facility.

In the images from the March 11 disaster, a massive surge of water triggered by the 9.0 earthquake breaches the seawall that protects the plant, and pours into the facility. One shows cars bobbing in the water.

Damage to the plant from the tsunami led to a nuclear emergency that captured the world’s attention.
