The details (from wikipedia)


Miki Endo (Japanese:遠藤未希) (1986, Japan - 2011, Minamisanriku, Japan), was the voice warning and alarm agent of the town of Minamisanriku during the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. She was employed by the town's Crisis Management Department to broadcast disaster advisories and warnings, and was hailed in the Japanese news media as a heroine for sacrificing her life by continuing to broadcast warnings and alerts over the community loudspeaker system as the tsunami overwhelmed the town. She was credited with saving many lives. The three-story headquarters of the department remained standing but was completely gutted, with only a red-colored steel skeleton remaining. Photos show the roof of the building completely submerged at the height of the inundation, with some people clinging to the rooftop antenna.
