This particular video shows the multiple tsunami waves rolling into the coast of Japan. This is exactly what Arney was talking about. You can see that the coastline is already partially flooded, so these were not the first waves. But more than likely they pushed the water further inland.

It does show that there is some warning time available - though not much.

NOTE TO GOOGLE and YAHOO: Do you guys realize how mercenary and cold-blooded you come across, when you post auto adds and phone adds in front of video's showing people getting killed by earthquakes?

NOTE TO JAPANESE TV REPORTERS: it is possible to land your helicopters and save a few peoples' lives. You don't need to spend all day getting video footage from the air.
