2011 Tsunami Footage

Amateur footage courtesy of TBS shows boats being overturned in the fishing port of Miyako, Japan and cars being carried away in Kamaishi city.

Video out of Japan shows ships being tossed about and pushed inland on a wave of water powered by the tsunami that was triggered by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake.

An 9.0 magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami that rolled into the Japanese port of Sendai, engulfing farmlands and carrying vehicles and buildings.

Video released shows the moment when the tsunami hit the small Japanese port town of Miyako.
