Tsunami in Japan: Cars Floating Like Empty Bottles

Look at the cars around frantically turning around and trying to our race the wall of water 3:00. Holy shit! Where else on the internet is there footage? Let 'em know in the comments.

Did you see the flaming buildings being washed inland by the wave? Terrifying. I just heard from the BBC that it's feared that the tsunami may very well reach a lot of Pacific islands at a height far exceeding the islands' height, washing everyone and everything away.

NPR says it already hit Guam and it didn't sound that significant.

SF Chronicle says that Al Jazeera has a live feed. I haven't checked this out on my dial-up.

My hopes and good wishes to everyone over there and out there. I hope the warning systems are working the way they need to be.

And if there is a God, maybe to make up for this act of His, He will "take care" of assholes like Limbaugh, Palin, and Robertson before they start spewing their hate.

Americablog says there's Hawai'i coverage here.

Also this, quoted from a Hawai'i paper:
A 6.5-foot tsunami is expected to reach Kauai at 3:07 a.m. today after it passed Midway Island at a height of 8.2 feet, according to the National Weather Service.
