Japanese Tsunami Viewed From A Car

Video speaks for itself...

4 minutes
Yu Muroga was doing his job making deliveries when the 11 March 2011 earthquake hit in Japan. Unaware, like many people in the area, of how far inland the Tsunami would travel, he continued to drive and do his job. The HD camera mounted on his dashboard captured not only the earthquake, but also the moment he and several other drivers were suddenly engulfed in the Tsunami. He escaped from the vehicle seconds before it was crushed by other debris and sunk underwater. His car and the camera have only recently been recovered by the police. The camera was heavily damaged but a video expert was able to retrieve this footage.

OMG!! I can't even begin to understand the impact of an event like that. My heart continues to go out to this country.

Allison, I was truly amazed by the attitude of the japanese people (and deeply respect it) when they faced such a horrible disaster.

That was... that was kind of disgusting in some quiet way ...

And the amazing thing is, did you hear any screaming? No. The Japanese are so stoic about these kind of things. The driver just waited for a moment when he could climb out. NO hysteria.

I was scared watching it and I was sitting here at my desk. I can not imagine being in it.
