(DAILY NEWS)   The 33-foot tsunami that pounded Japan reportedly swept away a ship carrying 100 people and left one of the country’s signature bullet trains missing.

The Kyodo news service reported the missing ship and train, although details were scarce about both. Video showed the black water knocking cars, trains and boats around as if they were toys.
