A series of catastrophic events, unbelievably linked, causing the preceding event to become even more nightmarish than earlier imagined and exponentially worse.
Who would think that an earthquake could lead to a tsunami, which would cause a nuclear meltdown and the contamination of an entire ocean. Why, it's the virtual Japocalypse!

The events in Japan following on from the earthquake of 11 March 2011, ie earthquake damage, tsunami damage, nuclear power plant damage, volcanic eruption, missing trains, massive destruction and climbing death toll.

From "japan" and "apocalypse".
Man, all they need are zombies and the Japocalypse would be complete.

A term for the combined disasters of earthquakes, tsunamis, and nuclear meltdowns occuring in Japan in March 2011. It's a portmanteau using the words Japan and apocalypse.
What's the latest news on the Japocalypse?

The sum of the events that occured in Japan as a result of the earthquakes of March 11, 2011. The earthquakes triggered massive tsunami waves 30 feet in size that completely destroyed the areas near Sendai, the epicentre of the event. Following the natural disasters, several major nuclear reactors started failing, causing widespread radioactive fallout.

As of the publishing date of this definition, only the first three waves of destruction have ocurred: Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Nuclear Fallout. More will follow, undoubtedly, as potential for nuclear meltdown is possible causing mutations; biological events due to cross-contamination of sewage and drinking water, famine; let's not forget civil unrest caused by tainted sushi and jammed vending machines that dispense used panties, etc.
As a result of the Japocalypse of 2011, small sea reptiles found their way to the core of several nuclear reactors. It is not known if their displacement was caused by the massive tsunami waves, or simply by the helicopters that were attempting to cool the reactors with scooped sea water. What is known is that one reptile survived the massive levels of radiation, feeding and growing to the size of a skycraper to form the fourth wave of destruction in the Japocalypse - GODZILLAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Only Charlie Sheen can save them now!

When an earthquake, tsunami and a nuclear meltdown all happen in one week in Japan.
I 'm at a bar drinking as much as I can because all proceeds go to the japocalypse disaster fund.
