Video: Watch the Japanese Tsunami Sweep Away Dozens of Cars and Boats

Watch as Japanese NHK World TV captures the Japanese tsunami sweep away dozens of cars and plow upstream so hard it effectively reverses the flow of the river. This video is from the Miyagi Prefecture of Sendai city about an hour and a half after the 8.9 magnitude quake shook off the Pacific coast of Japan.

Watch as NHK World TV captures the Japanese tsunami sweep away dozens of cars and boats from the harbor in the port of Kamaishi in Iwate Prefecture. You can hear a news anchor identifying and describing the scene of this twelve foot wave shortly before this silent video was recorded.

Correction: As you can see in the crossed-out text, we misidentified this video at first. It isn't from a river, but from a harbor in Iwate Prefecture. We updated the title of this post to correct the error. There's more information in the links above.
