Earthquake documentary by National Geographic

Witness: Disaster in Japan is a documentary produced by National Geographic that shows us a compilation of videos of what happened on the 11th of March. It shows images from the less affected areas like Tokyo or Saitama, as well as images from the most affected areas, devastated by the tsunami, like Miyagi and Fukushima. The documentary is edited so that is shows what happened in a chronological way, since the earthquake strikes until the tsunami hits 20-30 minutes after, depending on the area.

    Yes, I just watched it myself. I was in Takayama when the Earthquake struck. I had just left Tokyo. After watching this video, my god, my heart just aches for the people.

    Watched it. I had seen some of the amateur footage before, but the amazing edit work gave me a broader view of the entire catastrophe.
    Really insane. it’s still hard to believe we’re watching real events there. Very sadenning.
    We can only hope something like that never happens again, and wish for Japan to recover as fast as possible…
