The Japanese tsunami through the eyes of a Westerner who is living there . . .

One of my Facebook friends posted a link to this video:

. . . which led to a Facebook blog with further perspective on the disaster and more video, like this 1:29 clip from Japanese news:

I'm "just" astonished at the power of water to destroy things! And astonished, too, at how the water flows. As Sarita commented when she first saw the first video: "I thought there would be waves" . . . or a kind of wall of water. But, no, it seems as if there is a one-way river of water with these tsunamis (thinking back to what we saw when the tsunami hit Indonesia and Thailand six years ago).
