The Dish was up last night tracking developments. The horror as it unfolded transcribed here. One resource-rich paragraph:
BBC World has footage of a huge ocean whirlpool. Here's what it looked like inside a Japanese supermarket. And a home as the occupants evacuated. Other videos: a sea of floating cars; an airport runway is quickly overrun by water; a view from the air; the scene in an office; inside a department store; an explosion at an industrial facility.
Thanks to the Dish's West Coast bureau (that would be Conor in his jammies) for working through the night.
