Skyscrapers sway as the ground shakes from the Japanese 8.9 earthquake [Video]

As people grabbed for anything solid during the 8.9 earthquake that shook Japan on March 11, 2011 the ground wasn’t the only thing moving as you can see in the video below.

Japan has spent more money than any other country in the world on building safety for times just like this and we can be thankful that the only thing the buildings did was sway back and forth as this has probably saved more lives than we can imagine.
