Japan March 2011 tsunami videos

Most folks have probably already seen some of this on the news programmes. However, tv news often shows short clips. The following videos are longer. What’s extraordinary about these videos is that a large tsunami has never been captured before in such detail. Also extraordinary is that the March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami doesn’t seem to have killed vast numbers of people, despite the fact that it was one of the biggest earthquakes in history, and occured close to a densely populated area. The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami (a result of an earthquake off the coast of Malaysia) and last year’s earthquake in Haiti each killed around a quater of a million people.
