March 8, Minami-Sanriku, Japan - Abandoned fishing boats are neatly stack up waiting to be disposed in this seaside community of Shizugawa, Miyagi Prefecture on March 8. The community located deep inside an estuary by the Pacific Ocean was destroyed when the Magnitude 9.0 earthquake and ensuing mounds of tsunami struck the nation's northeast region, leaving more than 15,000 people dead and ravaging wide swaths of coastal towns and villages two years ago on March 11.
