Video Of The Gigantic Whirlpool Created By The Japanese Tsunami

Video of a whirlpool created in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Whirlpools are created a couple of different ways, either through tidal forces, or through a hole beneath a body of water providing a drain, similar to a bathtub when the plug has been removed.

Note the boat being brought in.
