Tsunami damage

Yesterday I watched  in horror, a TV special on the Japanese Tsunami one year on from March 11 2011.    I saw how the wall of water engulfed whole towns pushing all before it.  Houses, large buildings, cars and of course, people, were swept out of its way.  I had never before seen anything like it.  I was speechless at the damage inflicted by this water.

Imagine my surprise when after  being advised of a new follower of my blog, and clicking on the link I found that LimeIsBetter posted on the subject of the Tsunami, just a few days ago.  Click here for this moving account of the aftermath for the survivors.

I have nothing further to add to this post and leave you to read the post.

  1. That was a terrible disaster. I’ve read several follow up articles since then, mainly on the problems with the nuclear plant. It’s hard to look at the destruction.


    • I wouldn’t want to live in Japan now but I have a friend whose son does. Apparently in the towns, most people are going about their usual business without much thought about nuclear disasters or tsunamis. 🙂


  2. I reviewed stories too but this will heal. The radiation mess will last forever. You think that would be a lesson for countries hell bent of developing nuke weapons. You can’t use the things without contamination the entire atmosphere.


    • Yes of course natural disasters come and then go and life goes on. But as you say nuclear disasters have a much longer term effect, contaminating the atmosphere for ever.


  3. Did you also hear, Judith, Tokyo was hit with two separate earthquakes yesterday? No damage was reported – still, I can only imagine the fear that came over the people as things began to shake.
    I watched the tsunami videos shortly after it occurred. I was speechless.


  4. The forces of nature are so scary and totally out of our control – which is probably why they are so very scary.


  5. I’ve watched news coverage from various stages of it the past year. It is so hard to imagine what it would have been like to have first-hand experience. Some relief organizations are still there, helping to rebuild. That was definitely scary to hear the problems with the nuclear reactors.


    • I certainly wouldn’t want to be living in Japan now although a friend’s son who does live there says that life has pretty much returned to normal in Tokyo. The resilience of human beings is wonderful.
