“Video shows tsunami crashing into Fukushima nuclear site” via CNN News

Tokyo (CNN) — A brief video clip released Saturday captures the massive tsunami that crippled Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi power plant, showing the wall of water that slammed into the facility and created an ongoing crisis.

The video shows the giant wave generated by the historic March 11 earthquake crashing over the plant’s seawall and engulfing the facility, with one sheet of spray rising higher than the buildings that house the plant’s six reactors. Tokyo Electric Power, the plant’s owner, told reporters the wall of water was likely 14 to 15 meters (45 to 48 feet) higher than normal sea levels — easily overwhelming the plant’s 5-meter seawall.
