気仙沼では津波の後に発生した大火災がすべてのものを燃やしつくした。

まるで咬みちぎられたかのような旅館の建物。

いたるところに打ち上げられた巨大な漁船が視界を遮る。

Excessive amount of pebbles and rubbish at downtown of KESENNUMA seems like they are rejecting any incomings.
立ち入る事を拒むかのように、おびただしい量の瓦礫が散乱する気仙沼の中心街。

Telephone poles are lying far and wide in still flooded streets.
なぎ倒された電柱が、未だ水の引かない街のそこ此処に横たわっている。

Tsunami as massive as mighty ships get swollen destroyed the whole town in a matter of seconds.
巨大な船を運んでくるほどの津波が、まさに町を壊滅させた。

While local police officers are watching, search forces are searching missing bodies by using heavy equipment slowly and carefully.
多数の警察官たちが見守る中で、重機を使ってゆっくりと瓦礫を引きはがしながら丁寧に捜索を続ける。

焼け焦げた大型漁船が、係留されたままその姿をさらし続けている。

A fishing boat flag which is held on the ship during the return from successful outing, was swinging in the wind as if it is waiting for its owner in the pebbles and trash along Route 45.
国道45号線沿いの瓦礫の中で、まるで主を待っているかのように一枚の大量旗が風に揺れていた。
