Disaster

Arun has posted some video of the Fukushima tsunami that I hadn't seen before. The scene is a riverbank town. The most tragic aspect is that they had a considerable warning, with police and sirens, but many people chose to just gawk at the riverbank as the river first drained, gradually rose, and then quickly overswept the banks in a furious torrent, washing away cars, houses and the unwary people who had waited too long to seek higher ground.
