Tokyo, Mar 11 (PTI) A massive tsunami triggered by Japan's most powerful earthquake in nearly a century today wrought devastation in northeast coastal Japan, sweeping away houses, ships and cars and set ablaze several buildings, killing over 300 people.

Around 200-300 bodies were found in Wakabayashi area of Sendai city, close to the epicentre of the 8.9 magnitude quake as the tidal waves carried debris of buildings, overturned ships, cars and vehicles that came their way deep into the mainland, Kyodo news agency said.

Over 500 people were reported missing after the quake which unleashed 33-foot tidal waves in the country's northeast coast, public broadcaster NHK reported. The toll could go up significantly as reports of damage trickled in.

Television images showed fires raging in several building complexes as also a major petrochemical complex in Sendai. The tsunami also flooded the Sendai airport.
