Someone sent me this link this morning which I thought I would share, incredible HD footage of Japanese earthquake and Tsunami earlier this year http://www.flixxy.com/japanese-tsunami-viewed-from-a-car.htm

Frightening how sudden it was.

Truly terrifying.

I have not looked at the film footage, but I wonder if the massive,speedy, reconstruction of the Japanese main roads was undertaken by local builders, only...I guess so, because of the rapidity and efficiency of the recovery.

I am just re-iterating what gengiscant said, yesterday.

I am observing the resurfacing of a main road where I live. It's a very, demanding operation.

Six days to repair that road is truly amazing. Shropshire Council could learn a lot from the Japanese (a small bridge was closed for a month recently for repairs!).

You just cannot win on this one, because in my opinion I was stating in another post about how Japan coped with incidents of this type, yet the forum editor seemed to suggest that it was a disgrace, and civil unrest was evident?.

Seeing and experiencing what mother nature can throw at you, and at the same time, the human race is able to bounce back is a great achievement in itself, and I think this incident as proved that, perhaps more so with the evidence being provided.

The same is perhaps with some other countries, that cope with landslides or train derailments on a regular basis. Had that been the UK, it would have to take a committee and sub committee to approve the next move, irrespective of the inconvenience or delays to the public that would bring?.

I wonder what this winter will bring, when we have the wrong type of snow, sleet, ice or wet and everything comes grinding to a standstill?.

"the forum editor seemed to suggest that it was a disgrace, and civil unrest was evident?."

There has been a great deal of criticism from Japanese people over the way that their government has handled (or not handled) the recovery operation.

Some good photos of progress made but emphasise the scale of the devastation http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-15789694?googleeditorspicks=true
