Stunning Video Shows Wrath of Japan Tsunami
The clip begins as a wall of water breaches the coastline and starts sweeping away a parking lot of cars. Sirens sound and a man's voice is heard giving alerts as the water quickly engulfs the entire area. Within minutes, the surging water has left a path of mass destruction as cars are swept away and buildings are reduced to rubble.
Kesennuma, located 300 miles northeast of Tokyo in Miyagi prefecture, was near the epicenter of the March 11 earthquake that triggered the tsunami. The magnitude-9 quake was the strongest ever to strike the nation.
