Video of Mass Destruction

I came across this video of the tsunami in Japan.  I know this happened two months ago but the devastation is still affecting the residents of Japan and even around the world.  It was shot from higher ground at a high school but toward the end you can hear the panic in the people's voices as the water and debris get closer to them. While watching it, I was in awe and horrified at the same time.  I found myself yelling at the people to run!  Don't look back!  Just keep going!   Very emotional scene.

Oh my goodness, that is so scary, I was holding my breath while watching those poor people running.

So incredibly sad.

Wow - At the beginning there was a big semi that drove on the road past the gas station and I noticed that 1 minute and 45 seconds later the gas station was floating away and the water had covered the road - that was soooo fast!
And those people running from their house. Oh my gosh. It is just scary and awful to watch and to think of what they all went through.

It seems like so long ago now but it wasn't.

Oh my word, that is so sad. Yes, I know it was awhile ago, but when you watch this it brings back all the same feelings. Those poor people.

My heart goes out to them. It is so heartbreaking to watch.

And life will never be the same. I think I held my breath the last two minutes. Just aweful.
When I saw the people running and that lady carrying her pocketbook. I was thinking of Lot and his wife that turned and looked back and was turned to a pillar of salt at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Scary stuff.
