6029 ratings | 12670082 views
As survivors of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami grappled with the enormity of the devastation, more footage emerged on Sunday showing the moment the tsunami struck Japan's northeast coast. Residents of the port town of Kamaishi in Iwate prefecture watched in horror as the first huge tsunami waves hit, sweeping away cars and buildings. One group managed to scramble to safety on higher ground, where they watched as the water surged towards them. Others were stranded on the roof of a multi-storey building as the water level rose rapidly below.

I cannot imagine FOR THE LIFE OF ME standing on high ground and watching my neighborhood being washed away along with my house and EVERYTHING in it! I especially feel SO sorry for the children who had to witness this catastrophe at such a young age, they will probably have nightmares for years to come.

Technically, a tsunami is a surge, not a wave. Small waves can occur as the surge passes over underwater obstructions and similar, but the water movement as a whole can best be described as a surge of water.

240 dolphins in Taiji cove today, mostly juveniles - driven there by boats, most will be cut to pieces with their family members nearby and aware that they are next, a few others will be carted off to a lifetime of captivity in the various Asian hellhole waterparks. It is a pity this tsunami did not strike at the notorious Taiji region and wipe it from the map.

I was so impressed on how the people affected by this horrendous disaster took in the situation. People came together and helped one another. There was no looting or murders...victims actually waited in line at stores and food lines to be fed. You saw the best in people during the aftermath. Compare this to Hurricane Katrina, you saw the absolute worst in people during the aftermath. Mass lootings, murders, rapes, corrupt cops...even the Oregon National Guard with live ammo had to be brought in. If one day earth was gonna be destroyed by an asteroid, I'm gonna go to Japan so I don't get killed before the asteroid hits.
