I regularly read Deus Ex Malcontent. This morning Chez (who is known to be more than slightly acerbic) posted this video of the tsunami sweeping into a Japanese town. I think I forgot to breath while I watched it. I cannot even fathom the fear, horror, the sheer terror of the people in the path of the water. The force of the preceding quake moved New Mexico an inch, moved California as much as 8 inches — but what the quake and then the tsunami did to the island of Japan is unspeakable and unimaginable.
Adding a link to before and after satellite photos. Slide the center bar to the left and you will overlay the former city with the current landscape. This is so tragic!
