The March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami caused great loss of life and property in the Nation of Japan, and devastation to the environment. The extraordinary forces and flooding unleashed on the East coastal area also led to severe nuclear plant damage and radiological releases at the Fukushima Dai-ichi station. The global impact of the accident at Fukushima prompted the ASME President, Victoria Rockwell, to commission a Presidential Task Force to examine those nuclear plant events and their implications.
