    This was posted by ITNNEWS on December 1st.

    The driver was Yu Muroga, and his car had an onboard camera. It happened so quickly.

    Car washed away!

    Note, skip the ad at the beginning (if there is one).

    Holy crap!!! :eek: That is one scary video. Incredible footage, it certainly puts you in the scene.

    It gave me a little better appreciation of what those poor people went through. Tragic!

    Japanese version.

    It starts a little sooner that the above version. You see the earthquake, then see the tsunami.

    Wow, that's some crazy video ... I couldn't imagine being there.

    Glad that wasn't you, Sushi.

    That was featured in the Channel 4 documentary Japan's Tsunami: Caught on Camera that was shown a couple of weeks ago.

    It's got some amazing amateur footage of the devastation caused by the tsunami. It's hard to believe how some of them managed to keep on filming as they literally battled for their lives as the waters rushed in.

    Me too! :)

    I just did the shake, rattle and roll part. :eek:

    Unfortunately, I can't see the video. Maybe a YouTube video ...

    Amazing isn't it.
