Video: Tsunami Destroys City of Kesennuma, Japan in Under Seven Minutes

An eyewitness took this unbelievable footage which shows how the tsunami destroyed the city of Kesennuma, Japan in less than seven minutes.

At first there is just a trickle of water down the street. The trickle turns into a raging river — cars and trucks are swept away. Then houses come unmoored and are washed way, while the tsunami sirens blare. The photographer moves to higher ground as the waves keep coming. Kesennuma was home to 74,000 people.

Take a look, it’s pretty shocking — even when you know what to expect:
