“This video captures some amazing footage of the 2011 tsunami in Japan.”
This is an absolutely gripping video, that is equally amazing and horrifying. Much like a tsunami, the video starts out slow with only alarm bells, but at around the 2:20 minute mark the first sign of the small wave makes its way up the river, with onlookers unsure of the magnitude of the impending damage. The riverbanks are breached at 7:43. By 14 minutes, the debris and wreckage is massive, and the quantity of water flooding in is still growing. The last 6 minutes shows the waters receding, but the impact of the tsunami still spreads as fires spread through town. See below for a full documentary on the tsunami, or click here. I surely hope that no one reading ever gets a closer look at what a tsunami looks like in person.
