Force of Nature

I'm sure everyone by now has seen the astonishing tsunami footage to come out of Japan. Here is some amazing footage of what it looked like in Crescent City, California.

Here is time lapse video of the tsunami sucking in and out of Crescent City how the water changes direction back and forth so fast:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan.
