I found this video and thought I would share it. Did a search and found nothing on this video...

This really shows the power of this tsunami. The waves that are breaking that far from the shore are really a site to see.Now you actually see the power of nature at it's best. What I find interesting is the amount of tsunamis between the 1900's and 2000.


5.1 1908: Messina, Italy 5.2 1923: Kanto, Japan (関東大震災)
5.3 1929: Newfoundland 5.4 1933: Showa Sanriku, Japan (昭和三陸地震)
5.5 1944: Tonankai, Japan (東南海地震)
5.6 1946: Nankaidō, Japan (南海地震)
5.7 1946: Aleutian Islands

6.1 1952: Severo-Kurilsk, Kuril Islands, USSR
6.2 1958: Lituya Bay, Alaska, USA 6.3 1960: Valdivia, Chile
6.4 1963: Vajont Dam, Monte Toc, Italy
6.5 1964: Niigata, Japan (新潟地震)
6.6 1964: Alaska, USA
6.7 1976: Moro Gulf, Mindanao, Philippines
6.8 1979: Tumaco, Colombia
6.9 1980: Spirit Lake, Washington, USA
6.10 1983: Sea of Japan (日本海中部地震)
6.11 1993: Okushiri, Hokkaido, Japan (北海道南西沖地震)
6.12 1998: Papua New Guinea

There were nineteen, but now look at this...

7.1 2004: Indian Ocean
7.2 2006: South of Java Island
7.3 2006: Kuril Islands
7.4 2007: Solomon Islands
7.5 2007: Niigata, Japan (新潟県中越沖地震)
7.6 2010: Chile
7.7 2011: New Zealand
7.8 2011: Pacific coast of Japan

So now you see there have been eight tsunamis in the 2000's, but what is really scary is the fact that we are only eleven years into the 2000's and we have almost have as many as the whole 100 years from 1900's to 2000. Really makes you think about what nay be in our future.

Seen the video a few times on here but s&f for the tsunami count. Wow... That is scary. It's eight in eight years.

At 2:07, you can really see the incredible speed at which the water floods the mainland. I imagine it would have been a terrifying experience for those who were on the ground... It's lucky so many escaped!

The technology that we use to detect tsunamis have been upgraded each year.. perhaps that explain the increasing number of documented incidents

Your right about the technology and I cannot imagine what it was like before with no clue as to what was going to happen or even when it would happen. Mind boggling indeed.

Here is another video that is just surreal to me...

Seeing these videos really put's things into perspective as to the awesome power of mother nature.
