Though the Tohoku earthquake is the largest known tremor to have struck Japan, the vast majority of the fatalities and damage came not from the resulting tsunami. Impact Forecasting estimates insured losses (including Japanese Earthquake Reinsurance losses) between JPY2.3 to 3.1 trillion (USD30 to 40 billion).
