Thanks, that's exactly the videos I had seen live...
And remember, there's 70 000 people living there.
It seems they only are showing the coastal part of the city... the ``rural`` area... it seems the main center of town wasn't wiped out, but they are
not showing it... but I could be wrong...
edit on 12-3-2011 by Vitchilo because: (no reason given)
Vitchio, I noticed in the vid, one of the people being interviewed, said that the flooding was "of course" caused by the tsunami but that it also
could be due to "GROUND SUBSIDENCE" (at first I thought she was saying "subsedance" and apparently, so did the transcript writers at CNN because
that is the word THEY used, which made the search harder for me) but I discovered that this term "subsidence" means:
Subsidence is the motion of a surface (usually, the Earth's surface) as it shifts downward relative to a datum such as sea-level.
So apparently, the crust could have slid down below sea-level due to the quake and the water will not "go away" now as the tsunami waters recede.
THIS could be the reason that they were having such a problem with finding the boundaries of this town.
I suppose that the plate could have partially been submerged below the sea-bed as well, causing the complete shearing of the homes close to the
water's edge. It could have shifted again as the tsunami approaced and left complete shearing visible near the water with "ground subsidence"
throughout much of the remainder? Its awful to think about, I feel sooo sorry for these people, however, this might explain the sudden
"disappearance" of this particular bite of information from the mainstream media.
