New Tsunami Video Taken From Inside A Car

Aftershocks are still happening in Japan, nearly a week after last Friday's earthquake. And a 5.9-magnitude quake was recorded today off the coast, southeast of Fukushima. More than 5000 people are now confirmed dead. But the final number is expected to be more than 10,000. More than 400,000 people are living in evacuation centres.

Also, we found some new video that shows you the power of last Friday's tsunami. It's from a camera inside a car that was driving along a road near the ocean.

The man felt that he was safer in his car, so he held tight until the water settled a bit, then ran up a hill to safety. Incredible.
