Ishinomaki, Japan. More than 300,000 people became refugees in their own country, as Japan was hit by the worst natural disaster in the history of the country. Hundreds of evacuation centers were opened, in schools and other public buildings, providing shelter for the people whose home had been swept away by the tsunami wave.
