There are two people on the house with black roof @ 1:24 and they lived! I saw a Japanese documentary where they were interviewed. They said they were hanging on underwater and then the daughter got to the very top of the roof and pulled her mother up and just held onto her and the roof until the water went back out again. She said she could hear people yelling encouragements from the hill "just hang on!"

Goes to show no matter what we do, humans are insignificant when it comes to nature.

1:23 in another video they tell the story of a lady and her elder mother who are seen here on top of a building. They survived.

00:46 Muffled screams that become clearer as the house is torn apart. I cannot even imagine the terror. Your whole house ripped off its foundation, torn to pieces in a matter of seconds.

My God. This tsunami is at least 15 meters (50 ft) high. Gantry crane is halfway submerged.

We went to the place where it happened.
after seing this video I realized that sendai(the city) changed a lot, no more houses you could literally say it’s a ghost town.

It took me 5 years to re-discover the video. The scream when the house was taken away is something I cannot forget. It's quite surprising the camera man didn't record what happened to the people seen or heard in the video...maybe he didn't want to for moral reasons?
