In the second video you will see the largest oil refinery in the region exploding and other areas where flaming debris is being drifted downstream.

in addition, the Japanese government has told thousands of residents living by a nuclear plant in Fukushima to evacuate after the biggest earthquake in Japan's history hit the region. The reactor was not leaking radiation but its core remained hot even after shutdown due to a failure in the cooling system.
