Tower bent

For one way to visualize the strength of Japan’s earthquake, how about a bent tower? Gizmodo has pics – The Japanese Quake Was So Powerful, It Bent the Tokyo Tower. That’s the tip of a 1,091 foot (333 m) tall communications tower. It must have suffered like the end of a whip and it is rather incredible it didn’t fall apart.

Carlos Asarta, a UNL economic professor, was inside the tower at the time of the earthquake. Link has some of his videos.

About the tower at wikipedia – it’s an Eiffel tower take-off.
