House Afloat

This photo is sad. But amazing at the same time. Days after the quake, photographed, it is floating in the pacific ocean after the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

There have got to be something in the house build that made it float (I am assuming it sank eventually). The walls gotta be sealed tight allowing very little water to sip in. The flooring too might be left unscathed and is intact. Or maybe the bottom part is gone, the air inside the house makes it float (Japanese houses are bulit light, right?). Like I said, it's amazing and sad. Anyhow, hoping the owner of the house is not there and is alive and safe.

BTW, please read this, um, another amazing story, Why There Is No Looting in Japan.
