wikipedia - 09 Jul 2015
The 869 Sanriku earthquake (貞観地震, Jōgan jishin?) and associated tsunami struck the area around Sendai in the northern part of Honshu on 9 July (26th day of 5th month, 11th year of Jōgan). The earthquake had an estimated magnitude of at least 8.4 on the moment magnitude scale, but may have been as high as 9.0, similar to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. The tsunami caused widespread flooding of the Sendai plain, with sand deposits being found up to 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) from the coast.
