Scary New Footage From Japan Disasters

12 Apr

With each coming day it seems like there is a new horrifying video from the Japan disasters. In this case, here’s a new video of the tsunami and new aerial footage of the damage to the Fukushima Nuclear Reactor site (which was just today reclassified as a 7 on the disaster scale, out of a possible 7).

1) Tsunami Footage: This horrifying footage shows villagers fleeing on foot as the wall of water flows into their city. It looks like everyone makes it to the hill, but just barely.

2) Fukushima Damage: New aerial footage shows how devastated the nuclear power plant reamins. These images are particularly shocking because the situation actually seemed to be improving previously.

Survivors have taken up refugee at dozens of makeshift locations across the country.

Finally, look at how quickly this road was repaired. Six days after the quake, it’s ready for use again.
