Tsunami Live Footage
This is live footage taken of the tsunami by a man I met last Thursday and today at the temple in Higashi Matsushima that was functioning as an emergency shelter. This Chinese oyster farmer named Chaweitang (spelling?) gave me this amazing video shot taken just seconds after the tsunami hit and told me his story. There was no siren or warning that the wave was coming. He saw the tsunami and just started running, making it to the stairs of the elementary school mentioned earlier (blog entry "Emergency Shelter") just 30 seconds before the wave came!
