Harpreet Bedi : Japanese have always taught us how to rebuild and have hope...the most humanly power

Daisy Clark : It’s sad to think that the years it takes to build a life can be gone within a second.

Subham Mondal : Who's still watching it in Aug, 2018? As this was uploaded in 2011

Eyjafjallajökull Fimmvörðuháls Mýrdalsjökull : this is why countries should invest more in weather technology than in war supplies to manipulate or reduce weather caused casualties. It's going to be a normal thing in the 21st century. In one swoop, thousands die. Nothing can rival mother nature's wreath.

Wave : I just got an ad that said, “Nature is beautiful.”

2011yourlife : To the person that reads this, I ask the Lord to bless them and there family, to cure them of every sickness and pain, to fill there emptiness with love, joy and peace, to forgive their sins and to save them. To rebuke the enemy from there lives. FOR WE GIVE THANKS AND GLORY TO THE LORD. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AMEN!

Kaori azzahra : A beautiful country with a big tragedy

J Beable2 : The ocean engulfs everything in its path its scary how the planet is covered by 70% Oceans.

wildturkey1960 : I find it amazing that the more we learn of Tectonic Plate movements and the resulting wave/water dynamics from them, the more we really don't know and have to find out about them.

MIKE : The same thing almost happen to lombok in indonesia.. pray for those who had lost their importances...

Großkanzler Nicholaus Dietrich : If you are a seaman, it is better to confront the tsunami than to continue sailing while the tsunami is heading from your side. You will be MS Poseidon 2.0.

Lydia Mhir : Very heartbreaking

Duragon Rydar : Damnit i could see my hentai collection floating away

Car Fanatics : Tnsunami soup... worst thing on the menu

BackOfTheYards 773 : Mother Nature is beautiful,strong and scary all in one.we must respect it

Erin Flood : The really hideous part: Once a person is on a rooftop or whatever highest point is reachable, s/he remains trapped at that location- no recourse. As the water rushing by becomes deeper- by now filled with pieces from cars, buildings, trees- that person is stranded and has only to watch and to pray as the highest spot they could reach is overtaken and submerged like everything around it. Too many places were not high enough, not tall enough for people to escape the waters and live. (That footage also exists, obviously, and is incredibly sad.)

follow Jesus! : even today we are still finding things float ashore here on the Oregon coast from this event.
