The town was literally wiped off the face of the earth... Recovery from that is not so much salvage and repair as it is practically building a whole new town altogether. Anyone brave and ambitious enough to resettle the area has my respect.

Sad to see so much destruction...

I saw Kannagi years ago and today I found out that there was a special episode so I watched it and it featured a huge flood in the middle of town. And then I read about this. Talk about weird timing.
