Tsunami clip

Post  Pax-raider on Fri Mar 11, 2011 9:12 pm

You've probably all seen clips of moving walls of debris in Japan, but this clip has a unique before/during aspect that makes it interesting. Check out the building at the rear of the shot at 3:45 while the anchor is describing the scene, see the road to the right as they pan across and 2 cars going thru a few cm of water. Notice where the writing is on the white building, with the upper writing at the top of the 2nd floor. As they leave that shot the water is beginning to splash over a little. They go to some shots in Tokyo, and then at 6:45 go back to the harbour. Watch as the water level rises all the way to that writing, confirming the 6m wave the anchor mentions. Amazing stuff.

And for those interested, as ever The Big Picture has a thoughtful selection of photos that give us a greater understanding than mere headlines.

i have no words. Japan showed to the rest of us, how much strong they are. An earthquake like that in Rome, and Turin become the new Italy capital Rolling Eyes
