Haven't seen this video posted here, best look I've yet seen of the waters coming in. Seems mild at first but the water just keeps coming until it becomes disastrous.
All Bush’s Fault.
Six minutes between water on the street houses collapsing................
That was horrifying! The water just keeps coming and coming and coming, getting deeper and deeper.What I found the worst was the small group of people in the last shot, stranded on a debris pile and unable to go anywhere. I hope they got out alive.
Wow, out of all the videos I have seen, I think this one really brings it home, just how powerful a tsunami can be, I mean it just keeps coming there is no end to the water...
Yeah I was wondering if the car seen in the beginning was able to outrace the water. This should be mandatory viewing for those living on the coast, if you see even a thin layer of seawater coming you could be only a few minutes away from total inundation.
“That was horrifying!”
I totally agree. With earthquakes, a tsunami, nuclear explosions/meltdowns/radiation and volcanic eruptions, Japan just can’t seem to get a break this week.
God, be with and have mercy on the Japanese people.
On 2-28-2011 we had some flooding in the Cleveland,OH area. I had 4 feet of water in my basement. This puts that incident in a whole different perspective.
Definitely Palin’s fault. She must have put a target somewhere. I haven’t found it yet, but I’m still looking.
Thanks for the post! The water is relentless in its movement and destruction.
It all seems so very surreal....
Incredible footage, indeed.
Never underestimate the power of water and that water is ROLLING!
That was amazing.
I wonder how much time they had. The very last shot was of people standing in wreckage.
Prayers for those poor people.
What’s especially haunting is the sound of the sirens in the background.
This video is new too, and it shows on a order of magnitued higher the devestation, very scary
bump for later
The power of nature can be brutal. I could feel the fear in the Japanese people watching this. That is the best video I have seen showing the power behind a tsunami.
Wow. Unbelievable force.
At 1 minute in, the cars in the closest parking lot have water up to their floorboards, 1 minute later they are washed away, a minute after that a 20’ boat is upside down in that spot, and 2 minutes after that a house floats thru where the cars were.
It’s easy to see why Tsunamis used to be called “tidal” waves ... they have the same unrelenting, inexorable force of a tide at a much accelerated pace.
Prayers for Japan.
