Cities are covered and houses are burning while floating away in the aftermath of the Japan tsunami.

Torn up and terrified by a disaster that keeps getting worse, Japan has transformed in just four days from one of the world’s most comfortable countries into one of its most distressed. Japan was hit on Friday by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake, the 5th largest in the world since 1900, and countless aftershocks, including a shoreline-crushing tsunami and an evolving crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Officials estimate that at least 10,000 of its 2.3 million citizens were killed by the tsunami and quake and at least 15,000 are missing. New footage from the tragic event have been posted all over the internet seemingly on a daily basis. From the powerful current of the ocean crushing down buildings, enormous waves charging onto the land, and the heartbreaking footage of the locals watching their home get destroyed.
