Video of the Week: Extraordinary New Footage of Japan


Emil Hafeez, Staff Writer

This footage showcases the sort of destruction the island nation of Japan experienced as a major earthquake (magnitude 8.9) broke records last Friday as the strongest earthquake to hit Japan, ever. Chaos ensued, as a tsunami followed the earthquake; now, Japan deals with high levels of radiation as its nuclear power plants become in danger of complete shutdown. The nation of Japan and its people has our deepest sympathies and our utmost support.

The tragedy has evoked different emotions from YouTubers, and while generally thoughts of sympathy and prayers are expressed, some individuals claim that this is Karma for attacking Pearl Harbor or possibly God avenging the United States; this view is loathsome and entirely misguided.
