EXTRAORDINARY – DashCam Live Videos During Fukishima Tsunami

A Powerful Lesson During the Devastating Fukishima Earthquake and Tsunami



More: Extraordinary Video With More Footage and Details On Recovering the Footage From the Badly Damaged Dashboard Camera With Subtitles


Original Video: http://youtu.be/nBeN-FCx0p8

This is probably one of the most extraordinary live Fukishima videos ever captured while tsunami waters engulf the streets of Senda minutes after the devastating 8.9 Japan Earthquake.

In the first minute of this video, you will see the incredible shaking of the street and buildings, almost as if the landscape is on a platform of rubber. The back and forth movement is huge. Buildings sway, cars bounce, streets rise and fall.

One man crouches and reels in an attempt to keep his balance. The video skips to an hour later when the rushing waters hit without warning.

Mr. Muroga, a delivery driver who has a security dashcam installed in his vehicle, was making a delivery through Sendai’s Miyagino-ku when the March 2011 Japan Earthquake struck. Since he was over a kilometer away from the ocean, he and others mistakenly assumed they were safe from any resulting floodwaters.

Out of nowhere, you can see a torrent of rushing water start to rush across the intersection several blocks ahead. One passenger leaps from his car to the right. He doesn’t know where to run.

Suddenly, within seconds, waters rise from behind. Frantic drivers have no time to leave their vehicles and they begin to float. You can see the auto headlights beaming and windshield wipers swishing back and forth while cars, vans and trucks bob and float in the rapidly rising water filled with debris.

MIRACLE SURVIVAL

If there is ANYTHING amazing and beautiful about this video, it is that Mr. Muroga was able to leap from his vehicle and swam to safety. Within minutes, you can see his vehicle pummeled as it’s swept into a warehouse where it is then crushed and overcome in a wave of metal, water and darkness. At one point while still in his vehicle, Mr. Muroga had briefly hoped the flood waters would recede and he could be saved.

Mr. Muroga wants everyone to see the extraordinary power and devastation of a tidal wave that can overcome a city without warning. He reports that there was no noise, no warning whatsoever. It was truly a silent killer. His message:

Watch the video and see how important it is to leave your vehicle and seek higher ground during a tidal wave. If there are any coastal earthquakes, be aware of tsunamis even if you over a kilometer distant from the sea.

Men Save Desperate, Young, Grateful Whale

A Wonderful and Beautiful Story Ending

An extraordinary and beautiful, touching story to watch. This young whale is caught in an impossible tangle of nets. Her fins are pins to her side and her breathing is terribly difficult and labored. She is dying a prolonged and terrifying death. A small boat finds her, and the men work desperately against the clock try and save her.

The men radio for help, but none is forthcoming. They take matters into their own hands. Time is running out. The young whale grows more increasingly desperate, frightened and exhausted. But, he contains herself with extraordinary patience as the men work feverishly to cut the nets with one, small knife. It is difficult and laborious work.

At last! The whale is free. He cannot contain herself. He jumps and leaps for joy for over an hour before the small boat that saves him. Her ecstasy is boundless. It seems he is showing them his incredible happiness, relief, gratitude.

The men finally must say good bye. They are deeply moved and touched. This story will stay with them for the rest of their lives. They are forever changed.

A Brave Little Kitten Recovers After Being Thrown From Car

Little Beetle, an adorable little 9 week old kitten, recovers from broken bones, serious internal organ damage as well as other injuries, after being cruelly thrown from a fast moving car window. There is a reward for the capture of the suspects involved. A number of comments on the news site reflect a deep intolerance for such animal abuse. Little Beetle is cheerful as he limps about, and is experiencing a “miracle healing.” A sweet story of love and kindness of strangers and the Suffolk County SPCA.

Dog, Man and Heaven

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them… con’d >>

Katrinka - Unfailing, Lifelong friend - Dog is Man's Best Friend

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate of pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.

When he was close enough, he called out, “Excuse me, where are we?”

“This is Heaven, sir,” the man answered. “Wow! Would you happen to have some water?” the man asked.

Of course, sir. Come right in, and I”ll have some ice water brought right up.”The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

“Can my friend,” gesturing toward his dog, “come in, too?” the traveler asked.

“I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t accept pets.”

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.

“Excuse me!” he called to the man. “Do you have any water?”

“Why sure, there”s a pump over there, come on in.”

“How about my friend here?” the traveler gestured to the dog.

“There should be a bowl by the pump.”

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.

The traveler filled the water bowl for the dog and took a long drink himself. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

“What do you call this place?” the traveler asked.

“This is Heaven,” he answered.

“Well, that’s confusing,” the traveler said. “The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.”

“Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That”s hell.”

“Doesn’t it make you mad for them to use your name like that?”

“No, we’re just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.”
