|June 2011 (38.415 Degrees, 141.312 Degrees) Hiyori Bridge|
There were many stories of people whose lives were saved because they were able to get onto a bridge. Unfortunately, there were also some stories of people who were swept away as they tried to cross a bridge just as the waves overtopped the deck. However, a really tall structure like the Hiyori Bridge would provide a safe haven for anyone lucky enough to get to it before the tsunami arrived.
