If you ever wondered what it was like going through a Tsunami, this footage from Japan should spell it out for you. This is brutal to watch when you consider how many of the people you see in this film did not survive, including the driver of the car doing the recording. The sad part is, this is not science fiction, or even a mundane disaster film. This is the way the world really works, although thankfully it doesn’t do this very often or in very many places at a given time. But sometimes it happens, and a town of 17,000 people only has 7,000 survivors (one Japanese town’s real statistics out of a coastline of several dozen towns). I know the actual events were months ago now, but the impact will last for years, if not decades, on the surviving residents. They need all the help we can give them.
