Earthquake, Tidal Waves Hit Japan:
Hundreds Die

Tokyo, March 4 (A.A.P.).-Whole villages were swept away and hundreds died on Hokkaido, north island of Japan, when tidal waves followed five submarine earthquakes today.

The death toll is mounting hourly.
The entire island of Hokkaido and the northern half of Honshu (the main island of Japan) were shaken by the earthquake.
However, most devastation was caused by a series of tidal waves which struck the east coast of Hokkaido from Nemuro to Tomakomai and the east coast of Honshu as far south as Sendai.
