Fivealive saidYea its freaky to see that but most Tokyo skyscrapers are designed to sway because they are built on rollers...These rollers help to dissipate the energy that is being generated by the quakes.
If they didn't have them, the amount of energy build would have cracked the foundations and would cause a catastrophic collapses
the last video is the most terrifying. you can hear how scared the people are with the screaming. I'd be down those stairs so fast and out the door.
I agree. Those buildings are constructed for those types of earth movements. I worked in a high rise on the 29th floor several years ago and you could feel the building move just slightly during a bad thunderstorm. Not only earthquakes but they need to sway with the high winds too.
