It seems like each new video to come out of Japan's tsunami is more harrowing than the last, and this is the worst we've seen: a six-minute video taken from the street as the tsunami literally washes a town away. James MacWhyte, an American living in Tokyo, posted this video to Facebook.

"I want to show everyone the news media we are being presented with here in Japan," he wrote. "I think it's quite different from what you see on CNN and other Western news outlets. One thing about Japan—there are professional cameramen EVERYWHERE!" [via Reddit, Farhad Manjoo]
