Our hearts go out to the country of Japan and all the great paddlers we know over there.  From the HOA crew to Hiro, Sako, & Hiroshi Enimoto.  We pray that you and your families / friends are OK.  What a horrible geologic tragedy…. Water is powerful.  This footage reminds me of an artificial whitewater park on steroids with the boats getting surfed in the low head dam, and getting sucked under the bridge. It reminds me of the footage of that barged getting sucked under the bridge on the Missouri.
