Video: Here’s what being in a tsunami looks like
We saw some pretty insane videos of the Japanese tsunami back in March, when it happened, but this one (which is going newly viral for whatever reason, and which I hadn't seen before) is by far the insanest. This delivery driver caught the earthquake on his in-dash video, and it looks like no big deal — some trees shake, a guy stumbles but doesn't lose his footing. And then the water starts coming in. The driver escaped, but the car kept recording, and it is absolutely staggering how quickly the situation goes from "a little water on the road" to "utter wreckage."
