    Default Japan Tsunami

    I know we've all seen some horrifying pictures of the destruction by the tsunami in Japan, but I just saw this video. The destruction is beyond belief.

    The power of this tsunami is unreal. We grow up thinking that it's this huge wave that comes in and floods everything. It was amazing to see the unending flood that just gets bigger and bigger. If I'm looking at the adjacent building correctly, it looks like it reached the third floor. 30 feet. Wow. I'd be nervous that the building that the person shooting the video was on would be undercut.

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Amazing to see the power of a tsunami . . . truly amazing to see what it can do in less than 7 minutes.

    Ever read about the Johnstown Pennsylvania flood? The power of moving water is not to be underestimated!
