This was the aftermath of a 9.0 magnitude earthquake that shook Japan back in 2011.
That quake and subsequent tsunami killed 22,000 people and caused $300 billion in damage. Now, experts warn this could happen again but in a different part of the world.
Researchers have identified a hidden fault beneath Bangladesh and parts of east India and Myanmar.
