Top 10 videos of the week: March 18
We get a lot of footage each week here at The Weather Network, so we decided to share our favourites with you.
This week is a little different. You'll notice that all five of the top videos are in the #1 spot. Trying to pick one top video proved to be impossible with the footage we received from Japan.
Here are the weather videos that had people talking in Canada and around the world this week.
- #10 --Ingonish, NS. Check out these seals relaxing on the sea ice close to shore. They looked and sounded like they were having a good time.
- #9 -- Paterson, NJ. The Passaic River crested several feet above flood stage swollen from recent rains. The waters started receding earlier this week, but not before flooding at least five bridges in Paterson, New Jersey.
- #8 -- Milwaukee, Wis. Check out this incredible sinkhole that gobbled up two cars. The owner of one of the cars, said he felt the ground vibrating before the road opened up.
- #7 -- Weyburn, Sask. Winter has been alive and kicking in areas across the Prairies. Norma sent in this video showing the blowing snow conditions.
- #6 -- Oakville, Man. There was a blizzard warning issued for areas of southern Manitoba and as this video shows…it was certainly blowing around in Oakville, Manitoba.
- #1 -- Tokyo, Japan. These were the first images of the 9.0 quake as it happened in Tokyo first at a TV station and then in the Japanese Parliament.
- #1 -- Yokohama, Japan. To the south of Tokyo, this reporter and her camera person also caught the earthquake as it happened.
- #1 -- Sendai, Japan. The first wave of the massive tsunami rushed across fields and this airport in Sendia in Northern Japan. People went to the roof to escape the floodwaters.
- #1 --Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Video footage shot in various locations around northeastern Japan on Friday (March 11) showed raging tsunami waves rushing over embankments and flowing into cities and towns carrying vehicles, ships and houses inland.
- #1 -- Miyako, Japan. It almost looks like a computer animation as this black ribbon of water rolls through and washes away everything in its path.
Those are videos ten through one for this week. Don't forget to tune in to The Weather Network on TV every Friday morning for our weekly roundup of the top weather videos of the week.
