2011 tsunami in Japan passed off as 2021 floods in China

China witnessed the heaviest rains in 1000 years leading to devastating floods in the country.

A video showing cars and planes being swept away by the gush of water is being circulated with Telugu narrative "ఇది ఈరోజు "చైనా" పరిస్థితి ************************

#ప్రపంచం మీదకి #చైనా వాడు 100 #ఏళ్లకు ఒకసారి వచ్చే #కరోనా వదిలాడు.

#ప్రకృతి 1000 #ఏళ్లకు ఒకసారి వచ్చే #వరదల్ని #చైనా మీదకు వదిలింది.

బలహీనులని బలవంతుడు కొడితే ఆ బలవంతుణ్ణి కొట్టేందు భగవంతుడు ఉంటాడు.

ఎవరు అయిన చేసిన కర్మని అనుభవించసిందే."

"This is `China' situation today. Chinese left the Corona that comes once in 100 years onto the world. Nature released devastating floods that can be witnessed once in 1000 years onto China. Karma leaves nobody (sic)," reads the English translation of the message

Fact Check:

The claim is FALSE.

When the keyframes extracted from the video were searched using Google Reverse image search, we found that these were the visuals of the devastation caused by the 2011 tsunami in Japan.

This incident happened in Sendai airport in northern Japan on March 11, 2011, when an earthquake-triggered tsunami swept away several vehicles and aircraft.

The Atlantic.com published the photographs taken from the video.

Wall Street Journal Website published the raw footage of planes being swept away. It says that a Japanese coast guard has released unseen video of automobiles and planes being swept away by a tsunami that hit Sendai airport and port towns across northern Japan.

Images of the wreckage can also be seen on `Alamy.com'. "Wreckage of aircraft and cars are seen after being swept by a tsunami following an earthquake near Sendai airport in northern Japan March 13, 2011," reads the description.

Therefore, an old video of the devastation caused by the 2011 tsunami in Japan is being shared with a FALSE narrative. So, the claim that the video shows the visuals of floods in China is FALSE.
