Japanese Tsunami Viewed From A Car

Japanese Tsunami Viewed From A Car

Yu Muroga was doing his job making deliveries when the 11 March 2011
earthquake hit in Japan. Unaware, like many people in the area, of how far
inland the Tsunami would travel, he continued to drive and do his job. The
HD camera mounted on his dashboard captured not only the earthquake, but
also the moment he and several other drivers were suddenly engulfed in the
Tsunami. He escaped from the vehicle seconds before it was crushed by other
debris and sunk underwater. His car and the camera have only recently been
recovered by the police. The camera was heavily damaged but a video expert
was able to retrieve this footage.
