A new video has emerged on the web showing an extensive view of the sheer power of the recent tsunami in Japan. The video was captured by an onlooker who was stranded on top of a building near the port of Kesennuma.
At first, the water seems to trickle over the harbour wall, but as time passes the speed and flow of water just keeps rising to unbelievable levels, taking everything in its path. Cars are tossed and tumbled literally like they are toys in a bath tub. Even an entire shed/factory is picked up and swept downstream, squashing cars against buildings.
Simply mind-blowing footage showing just how vulnerable cars can be. In these circumstances it's highly recommended not to try and outrun the water before it reaches you, safety personnel recommend trekking to higher ground by foot. But as the footage proves, there's hardly any time to prepare for such a catastrophe.
