Google Adds Some Depression To the Holidays With Updated Post Tsunami Street Views Of Japan

| December 13, 2011 | Reply

Japan was rocked by an earthquake and Tsunami earlier this year as everyone knows. To document the tragedy Google made 360 panorama images and satellite views that they started collecting in July. The street view cars Google used traveled more than 27,000 miles to bring this chilling set of images together.

Google also set up a website “Memories for the future”  so you can check out before and after images all over the country. While I don’t really like to see these things myself, I understand that we need documentation for historical purposes. Many people find these images interesting or riveting and maybe even humbling.To see what just a few minutes of nature can do to destroy decades of human activity is pretty fascinating.
