I'm sure this link has been posted before, but it is so staggering I think it needs a stand alone.
21 pictures, on which you can drag a line between pre- and post event.

You cannot get through these without saying 'holy shit' a lot.
Staggering losses, just staggering.

Good photos...

I suspect the before pics may be quite old, as in some cases there are sturdy buildings that survived that are not present in the before pic. The rail building in the airport photo is the most striking example.

Wow.

I guess if anyone wanted to know what Japan would have looked like if they'd invaded teh home islands in '46 would have looked liked.

Both amazing and sad at the same time. Nothing compares to the power of nature.

New York times has a better view. On their site you can slide the middle divider back and forth.

And you wonder how myths of world-wide floods started back in the day.

To anyone living through an event like that it must have seemed like the end of the world was upon them.

Look at all that farmland now toast. I'm sure all that saltwater isnt good for it.

Expect the price of rice to raise drastically.
