About 5 1/2 minutes long but it goes to show the power of water.

"We've seen a lot of footage of the tragic Japan tsunami, but this clip is the most horrifying yet. Entitled "South Sanriku -- Tsunami seen from Shizugawa High School," it's shot from high ground, but toward the end of the video you can see panicked residents running for their lives.

Almost as dramatic as the video is its audio track, where even if you don't speak Japanese, you can tell the people are expressing concern at the beginning, but by the end, their voices have reached a high level of panic and horror as they watch their homes washing away."

Thanks for the link Bill. Water is relentless and that shows it very well. It does almost as much damage on it's way back out too.

The country still hasn't fully recovered from that tsunami. The debris has started washing up on the west coast lately. It's very scary what water can do!

That is horrific. I can't imagine the terror that must have been felt by those people.
