Astounding.

Above and below, the coastal town of Arahama, where all the houses have simply disappeared.

The satellite images were taken by GeoEye after (top) and before (just above) the disaster.

Let's not forget the radioactive plumes. Any images / tracking info on those?

You mean first picture is AFTER the quake then the second picture is BEFORE when there are houses.
Otherwise everyone should have an earthquake shake into existence thousands of houses from thin air.
