The MOST CATASTROPHIC TSUNAMI Footage Ever Caught on Camera | 2017 Destructive Japanese Tsnuami
    The 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tōhoku (東北地方太平洋沖地震 Tōhoku-chihō Taiheiyō Oki Jishin?) was a magnitude 9.0–9.1 (Mw) undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan that occurred at 14:46 JST (05:46 UTC) on Friday 11 March 2011,[7][8][9] with the epicentre approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) east of the Oshika Peninsula of Tōhoku and the hypocenter at an underwater depth of approximately 29 km (18 mi).[7][10] The earthquake is also often referred to in Japan as the Great East Japan earthquake (東日本大震災 Higashi nihon daishinsai?)[11][12][13][fn 1] and also known as the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake,[27] and the 3.11 earthquake. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded to have hit Japan, and the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record-keeping began in 1900.[9][28][29] The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves that reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft) in Miyako in Tōhoku's Iwate Prefecture,[30][31] and which, in the Sendai area, traveled up to 10 km (6 mi) inland.[32] The earthquake moved Honshu (the main island of Japan) 2.4 m (8 ft) east, shifted the Earth on its axis by estimates of between 10 cm (4 in) and 25 cm (10 in),[33][34][35] and generated infrasound waves detected in perturbations of the low-orbiting GOCE satellite.[36]
    On 10 March 2015, a Japanese National Police Agency report confirmed 15,894 deaths,[37] 6,152 injured,[38] and 2,562 people missing[39] across twenty prefectures, as well as 228,863 people living away from their home in either temporary housing or due to permanent relocation.[40] A 10 February 2014 agency report listed 127,290 buildings totally collapsed, with a further 272,788 buildings "half collapsed", and another 747,989 buildings partially damaged.[41] The earthquake and tsunami also caused extensive and severe structural damage in north-eastern Japan, including heavy damage to roads and railways as well as fires in many areas, and a dam collapse.[32][42] Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said, "In the 65 years after the end of World War II, this is the toughest and the most difficult crisis for Japan."[43] Around 4.4 million households in northeastern Japan were left without electricity and 1.5 million without water.[44]
    The tsunami caused nuclear accidents, primarily the level 7 meltdowns at three reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant complex, and the associated evacuation zones affecting hundreds of thousands of residents.[45][46] Many electrical generators were taken down, and at least three nuclear reactors suffered explosions due to hydrogen gas that had built up within their outer containment buildings after cooling system failure resulting from the loss of electrical power. Residents within a 20 km (12 mi) radius of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and a 10 km (6.2 mi) radius of the Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant were evacuated.
    Early estimates placed insured losses from the earthquake alone at US$14.5 to $34.6 billion.[47] The Bank of Japan offered ¥15 trillion (US$183 billion) to the banking system on 14 March in an effort to normalize market conditions.[48] The World Bank's estimated economic cost was US$235 billion, making it the costliest natural disaster in world history.

    1. I can’t understand Japanese but I have lived in areas prone to tornadoes. I have personally been inside one tornado luckily it didn’t touch all the way down on top of me but the noise is deafening literally having an F3 right above your head. I have experienced the devastation of tornadoes and A microburst and been in a nearly 6 magnitude earthquake. The Joplin 2011 tornado is sadly any devastation I have seen that was close to this Tsunami. I have literally seen winds just wipe everything off in a matter of seconds it’s horrifying and crazy enough to be in several tornadoes and a 100+ microburst luckily I didn’t lose my house in 2007. The earthquake I experienced in 2016 was quite scary I couldn’t walk it was shaking so hard and I thought it wouldn’t ever stop. I’m very lucky my home didn’t collapse killing me. I helped neighbors rebuild after several floors they had collapsed luckily no one died. With me it’s lots of tornado weather and one of them is bad and Joplin 2011 was absolutely unreal killing 100s of people near my area. In my opinion any of it is bad. I hate to reveal here and I’m not kidding if your on the Us American East or West coast it was revealed this is what it would be like and November looks likely. I hope TO GOD I’m WRONG and if I’m not I Hope people don’t Die. If you haven’t believed Jesus was the only way out of this mess do so today!!! I’m not being funny or cute but I am warning that this is coming to both coasts of America. I have sinned terribly against God and Frankly I deserve to die in this stuff and Go to Hell but He showed me though I do doubt and admit it That HisPlan was bigger than death or this Tsunami or those tornadoes. Maranatha/The King is Coming. This video is awful horrible if you ask me. I feel so undeserving of life because of my sins that I admitted to God I deserve myself to die in something like this it broke my heart so terrible at my own sin.

    2. If you’re going to use other people’s content, at least give them credit. This video was created by a person from Japan, who deserves to be treated with respect.

    3. Let this serve as a reminder that your life can change in an instant. Mother Nature doesn't care about what car you drive, how big your house is or how much money you have. The playing field becomes equal when she shows up. So, cherish every moment.

    4. This tsunami terrifies me, yet I almost cannot look away..I wonder how many saw it coming and were frozen in terrified awe.. unable to move even as the water began to rise.. I've watched 311 tsunami extensively, it is just mind blowing the power the ocean can generate.. we may as well still be building castles in the sand in the face of such destruction. Hoping these videos help us learn and adapt so that next time perhaps it won't be so tragic.. best wishes to all who lost everything on that day. Hope you find mercy and peace.

    5. This is the most insane video of the tsunami, and the music and the personal look at the people broadcasting from the top of that building made it very personal. Its insane how fast the water rose I mean it just kept coming like it would never end. The loss of lives is very tragic and as hard as things like this is to watch, it is a very important lesson to anyone along coastlines, Do not underestimate the ocean.

    6. It's still hard for me to comprehend that the tsunami with such immense power could swallow this whole building at 1:18, up to this roof, R.I.P to those officers who dedicated to save others while sacrificed their lives

    7. So heartbreaking.
      After living for 30 years on the coast of Florida and having been lucky to evade dozens of close hitting hurricanes , we finally decided to move inland
      We bought out dream home in Henderson Nevada and will be saying goodbye to Florida FOREVER on October 21st this year ??
      I'm sitting on clouds 9 ?

    8. Stadium would be the worst place to be.
      Nevermind the roof that got completely flooded and took all them people was the worst place well in hindsight I guess anywhere on that day in Japan would've been a nightmare. RIP TO ALL LOST SOULS TAKEN AWAY EARLY BY AN ACT OF NATURE a force so fierce that no one could predict only guesses of what would happen.

    9. Living in a country full of illegal aliens is the only thing more terrifying than this. Vote Trump 2020! At least he can control these breeding disasters from flooding over the borders.

    10. What a brave woman! The Tepco Manager should live with their Family in the Atomic area that they created with their lies and no Knowledge , like their workers had to do for their work. This is a sign of honors
