|The Third||7.1||Off the east coast of Honshu, Japan|
|The Second||6.8||Near the east coast of Honshu, Japan|
|The first||8.9||Near the east coast of Honshu, Japan||*|

But it's not the paper facts that really put the devastation into perspective its the live video footage and the pictures that are truly heart wrenching.
