Video: .0.2 to 0.5 -- i doubt if any of the drivers survived. the tsunami was travelling very very fast.

I think people underestimate the sheer power of water. Some of these videos have certainly demonstrated that. Although I agree that in all of them you see people milling about or driving before the wave hits, and you wonder what happened to them.

That and all the people who were probably shooting insane video who didn't make it when the entire building they were in got swept away.

When power is restored in these areas you'll see ALOT more video I think. This isn't some poor country lacking in people wiht handheld electronic devices.

Japan is a really 'with it' country too. Hope they get back on the fast track to complete recovery, the lives that were lost is horrible.

On a lighter note, I keep looking for a McDonald's sign floating away, and I never see it

That's because they cemented the sign with that pink shit they call chicken Mcbuttnuggets.

I saw that debris wave vid the other day. Crazy stuff, fires burning in the midst of the debris in water. Can't help but wonder WTF the people in the trucks on the bridge and the cars on the road were thinking. I'm gonna assume that they didn't survive.

At one point on CNN they reminded viewers that water is one of the heaviest things around. According to Answers.com, a cubic yard of water weighs 1682 pounds and contains 202 gallons. So a six-foot block of water--which isn't that big, when you think about it--weighs as much as a car. Now line up a few thousand cars and throw them all, at 50 miles an hour, into some buildings.

Could you imagine if that was gatorade and not water?

In all seriousness, I'm glad I'm not living on the coast because they are predicting a massive earthquake to happen in central US, soon.

wut?

And we're all screwed if Yellowstone blows. Basically the center of America is just waiting to explode, which will pretty much wipe out the planet and we'll join the dinosaurs in the "mega-extinction event" category. The next species to rule the planet--probably some variant of a bee or cockroach--will find our bones in a million years and postulate what our existence was like.

It is going to take a decade for them to recover from this.

That's truly not a severe weather disaster because Katie Horner doesn't appear anywhere in the video.

If Katie would have been within 10 miles of their filming location, the extra moisture would have been enough to raise the water level at least an extra 5 feet, likely relsulting in "Suto" being washed off the roof.
