The strongest earthquake to hit Japan in at least 300 years rocked the country on Friday afternoon, triggering a 10-meter tsunami that violently engulfed cars and other objects in its path in northern Japan, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes and setting off tsunami warnings for 53 countries around the world. Police raised the death toll to 200, with at least 39 missing while dozens were injured in a wide range of areas including Miyagi Prefecture and central Tokyo, according to Kyodo News and the Associated Press.
