Tsunami damage in Ofunato Video #3

1 May, 2011 (20:33) | Uncategorized | By: Dan

Photos, or even video, cannot really convey what it is like to be in the areas hit by the giant tsunami. Rikuzentakata is frightening because of the near complete devastation – there are only a few buildings left in the lower part of the city, 70% or 80% of the city is simply gone. The tsunami hit Rikuzentakata with such force that it simply slapped most buildings into scrap wood. Ofunato is overwhelming in a different way. Instead of being knocked flat, the city was flooded and everything that floated was washed into the buildings and streets. In Ofunato, the task of cleaning up and rebuilding is overwhelming. Let’s pray for these people and for the thousands of volunteers helping to cleanup the mess.
