Japan Tsunami Footage Makes The Rounds Half-Year Later (VIDEO)

First Posted: 09/23/11 05:06 PM ET   Updated: 11/23/11 05:12 AM ET

Amazing footage from a delivery truck's dashboard shows the incredible force of the Japanese tsunami that hit the country in March.

The video made the rounds on Twitter over the last couple days and even got billed on "Today" as "new video."

The problem with describing it as recently discovered footage is that the video has been on YouTube since June 20.

The clip has logged more than 1.7 million views over the last three months, with good reason -- the footage is disturbingly powerful.

So, as the old slogan goes, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you." If you're not one of the million-plus people who have watched the video, you can check it out below.

Following the tsunami, the use of nuclear power has been questioned in Japan. On Monday, the Associated Press reported that tens of thousands of people marched through Tokyo chanting "Sayonara nuclear power."
