Japan Earthquake: Helicopter aerial view video of giant tsunami waves


A ferocious tsunami spawned by one of the largest earthquakes on record slammed Japan's eastern coast on Friday, killing hundreds of people as it swept away ships, cars and homes while widespread fires burned out of control. Police said 200 to 300 bodies were found in the northeastern coastal city of Sendai, the city in Miyagi prefecture, or state, closest to the epicentre. Another 137 were confirmed killed, with 531 people missing. Police also said 544 people were injured.

This is so depressing to see. Such a beautiful country, that I plan to visit again. And shame on every hate comment below and after me. Your all heartless bastards. no one deserves this.

Horrifying, sad, and god bless them.

This comment section makes me lose faith in humanity... if i ever had any

For the people who are saying this country deserves this or that, and the people who are joining in (sarcastically or not) you should be ashamed of yourself.

R.I.P all the ones who were taken from the wave...

This is very sad. We're not not only seeing property destruction, we're seeing death. To those if you who who are having a fit about people mentioning God, why dies it cause you to act so angrily to them? Just because you don't believe doesn't mean you should act harshly to those that do. We all have the right to believe what we want, and you shouldn't try to silence anyone, especially if it's not harming anyone.

This is terrifying beyond words.

Poor people, they worked so hard to build and create the things that were destroyed in a blink of an eye.

Feel very sorry for Japan.. ;(

Sad to see such beautiful landscape - results of people's hard work - being destroyed just like that! I pray for Japanese people.

Thumbs up if you came from the Chilean Earthquake.

I still remember sitting in my room at like 1-2am in the morning and hearing about the tsunami live. Stuff like this you just never forget.

This is the first time I saw any of the destruction happen. 😔 Very sad.
Nassilyn Kaneo
it's just incredible on how fast that wave is traveling.. best yet it is from a helicopter and easier to see the whole speed of it.

OMG! Godzilla is coming.... Pork fried rice : )

Wow. This heart breaking. May God have mercy on the survivors.

Actually, most Japanese people don't eat whales. This is the truth. I don't know who eats whales...

ahhh glad im not there!! the poor people who went through that pain:(
Davilyn Estrada
Omg I pray that the people who were safe are still happy
Anthony Koutso
It obviously killed a lot more people than 9/11. It's a natural disaster that hit half a country and caused houndreds of buildings to collapse and nuclear waste to be spread. Did you think 2 buildings falling was gonna amount more deaths than that? What are you on about?
Shutruk Nakhunte
So, did flood reach that truck driver?
SALOMON RODRIGUEZ
what's that jumping between buildings on minute 2:15 top left? is white
Shari Flatts
multiple  waves one behind the other... japan did not have a chance but the day before it happened they said the animals were noisy and some turn up dead on the shore....nature always  give u a sign 
myles Wu
any subtitles? religitards in the comment section😒
thalia madeley teran elias
Look at 2:23 & 2:29 ........... O_o
Diogo Bauler
Unbelievable. Hard to see that even years later. 
SpiritualRealmS
So many psychopaths in the comment section, wow. Yes, nature is what it is, and yes, people do make mistakes, but isn't there any compassion for what happened to those people that live there??? Lives are lost, families are torn apart, and everything they worked for in their live is torn to pieces. Quite disturbing certain people's attitudes.
Sarah Walton
I remember watching this as it happened. It was horrible to see the cars driving as fast as they could, but you could see the tsunami was much faster, and you knew those people probably weren't going to make it. I was watching it with my husband, and we both occasionally burst out with, "Run! Run!" while watching people.
Mej Volkano
watch from 2:13 until 2:21, a mysterious small white shape moves a surprising speed to escape the water (an animal or what) it's going towards the middle of the screen (near the small gray roof) and goes to the left of the screen by making quick jumps Sorry for the spelling (with google translate)

Japan is a dangerous place sometimes.

lo siento mucho lo sucedido , mi respeto atoda la nacion japonesa y mucha fuerza para sobrellevar esta tragedia.
RanndomUndead
aerial shots dont do waves justice...
xxCCBBxx
What is Amazing to me is that this killed over 5 times the amount of people who died here in the United States during September 11th. Such a tragedy. 
Rose Pinkson
I remember the tsunami like it was yesterday and it's something I'll never forget. I also can't believe today marks the 4th anniversary.
Tommy boy
+Art Sloan You and Deborah are both idiots who obviously know nothing about Japan. Japanese are some of the most disciplined people in the world. When an entire town is washed away, there's bound to be debris from it.

LOOK AT THIS!!!!!!!  anybody else see that shit jumping from dry spot to dry stop on the middle of the screen at 2:12

Ghost at 2.27 flying or floating right through the farm land getting its ass away from the water.

撮影班は心を痛めてる! 撮影することが後に役立つがこの光景は地獄ですね!
tall32guy
4 years on, and I'm thinking of them today while watching this. Hoping everyone involved in it has moved on at least somewhat and been able to get their lives back to some semblance of normal. <3 To all of them!
Lizzy Haskell
That's so sad :'(
Zotha Navit
I read the comment and How dare u speak ill of Japan. When they are suffering. I am not Japanese but i love Japan. There are so brave that they did not get crazy horrified. They keep their cool even in this case of Desester.
