Geo 730: April 2, Day 457: I Of The Storm

Here's a close-up view of the twisted remains of the only remaining I-beam on the end of the tsunami dock. There's not much for scale in this photo, but yesterday's gives a pretty good sense. The way the steel is sheared, torn and warped is humbling. Looking at the base, you can also see that this one came very close to being torn out as well; the concrete is broken, revealing the rebar reinforcement underneath.

Photo unmodified. July 10, 2012. FlashEarth location (approximate).
