Two Years Since Deadly Earthquake and Tsunami Hit Japan
Today marks two years since a deadly earthquake and tsunami hit Japan.
More than 300,000 people are still displaced and virtually no rebuilding has begun.
Memorial services are planned for today in Tokyo and in towns along the battered northeastern coast.
The 9 point magnitude earthquake was the strongest recorded in Japan's history.
It unleashed a massive tsunami that killed nearly 19,000 people.
The quake and tsunami also almost caused a nuclear meltdown.
Nearly a thousand victims are filing lawsuits today in hopes that some rebuilding efforts will soon begin.
