Japan Earthquake Spawns Devistating Tsunami

What a difference a day makes. Last night we in the United States went to bed thinking about basketball, baseball, politics, localized flooding and more.  But little did we think of the terror that the residents of Japan would experience due to the effects of an 8.9 magnitude earthquake and the devistating tsunami that followed.

When man is confronted by nature, nature always wins.

Below are two videos taken in Japan as the tsunami swallows the land. The first shows the tsunami slamming into the coast of northeastern Japan

The second show the raging images from the port city of Kamaishi.

In both instances, notice the power of the water. Cars, boats, and whole buildings are dislodged and carried away as if mere toothpicks in a bathtub.

Our thoughts and prayers to out to all those affected. We pray that the causalities are low, and that most of the damage affects physical items that can be replaced.
