Dramatic rooftop video from Japan's Kesennuma port shows a close-up view of powerful tsunami floods which completely devastated the town on March 11.

The tsunami which struck Japan's northeastern coast following a 9.0 magnitude quake has likely killed more than 10,000 people and triggered a nuclear crisis at one of the nation's nuclear plant complexes.

Kesennuma port is located about 80 miles (128 km) northwest of the quake's epicenter in the Pacific Ocean and about 300 miles (482 km) from Tokyo.

In the video posted to YouTube, water quickly rises, carrying cars and other larger vehicles inland. As the levels continue rising, entire buildings are seen being uprooted and moved far into the distance. Taller multi-story buildings, including the one where the videographer is filming, are among the only structures standing when the video ends.
