Tsunami – world videos II (unbelieveable)

I couldn’t sleep tonight so I spent some time surfing a few non-North American news sites for fresh video of the situation in Japan.  I must admit there is a morbid curiosity – rarely do we see such devastation captured in HD video.  The tsunami and subsequent surge of water still boggles my mind.  It’s interesting to see that many non-American media sources seem interested in telling the story as best they can as it unfolds whereas after the cursory ‘lead story’ byline on CBS, Fox et al, the talking heads seem eager to return to the latest Charlie Sheen antics – a sad but perhaps telling commentary on our state of affairs.

The videos below are stunning and while I am obviously concerned for those in the flood zone, I can’t help but be amazed by the awesome power of the ocean.  Sources: Russia Today, NHK, ANN, CNN Japan, ITN.  To share these videos, click whatever share button you want at the bottom of the post.

Tsunami – world videos…

Another collection of videos.  The devastation is unimaginable but thankfully the death toll is not where it might have been.  I guess I should clarify – at present, JapanToday is reporting deaths of around 10000 which is obviously tragic but thanks to the emergency response plan of the Japanese, it is massively less than it might have been; remember the Boxing Day tsunami – over 250,000 dead.

From Russia Today: boats, houses – amazing power

The road is moving and getting flooded….
