Sendai Airport Flooded: Video
Also viewable in the player below: footage of Sendai Airport as the tsunami hits. This could be the most well-documented natural disaster in history: the Japanese population is very tech-savvy, and tended to have high-quality mobile phone cams, at the very least, with them when the quake struck. The result: we can see the destructive power of the quake and tsunami from hundreds of different vantage points, which gives us at least an inkling of what it must have been like to experience such a nightmare.
