    Not that I don`t feel terribly sympathetic towards those who are affected by the tsunami, my thoughts and prayers go out to them, but.. Japanese residents have some serious cahones.

    how is everything floating so well? if there was a flood in america, cars would stay underwater, houses would fall apart and parts would float away.

    Change your name please. It`s not the same kind of flood that you get from rainfall. It`s the ocean swelling and rising and releasing a surge of energy in the form of a wave.

    Ocean storms generate waves that can move heavy rocks inland. Happens all the time in Hawaii.

    Truly haunting video, I never would have imagined damage so great. Also, in response to the several queries as to why the cars float, I can briefly explain. You see how the water has high and low points (like hills)? Cars and houses float up as it is pushed towards the upwards curve of the wave, a supplemental force to the regular buoyancy force, which combined exceeds the weight (see picture)

    Thus, rises on on the up, and lower on the down. The rapid moving water explains why the car doesn`t touche the ground long enough to establish friction-it doesn`t have time for the downward portion to sink it. Hope that helps (or at least dredges up your dreaded high school physics memories ;-) )

    One more addition to the "why do the cars float" topic: Cars don`t sink like rocks; if dropped into water they bob until they fill with water. The cars in the video are mostly on the ground so as the water comes by it gets high enough on the car to cause the buoyant force to cancel out enough of the gravitational force to allow the car to be swept with the flow.

    It`s insane... To see entire shops and homes wash down a river like a leaf. Brand new cars floating around like pool toys. How these people can keep such composure and hope and everything amazes me. Incredible footage.

    It`s a freaking tsunami vs a car. Nuff said.
