Japan Quake: first-person tsunami video becomes iconic

[video link]
Over the weekend, I blogged a pointer to this video, which was shot by a local resident in a northern Japan town devastated by Friday's great quake and tsunami. The video has since gone very, very viral; and is now uploaded to YouTube where more of you will be able to view it. I am not a fan of disaster porn indulgence, but I share this again because the video has so clearly become a single, iconic item in this unfolding story. I suspect that years from now, we (and our kids) will look back at this video as an important digital relic that captured the force of the disaster, and the horror its victims faced.
