Here's one picture of the tsunami. Anyone know of any other

This is the only good tsunami picture that I've seen. Looks pretty impressive.

Does anyone know of any other good videos/pictures on the internet?

More than likely those people are history. Very sad.

Had a picture sent to me yesterday of this bay in Phuket... I thought they were logs... but sadly they were people. Maybe 7-800 floating in a pile.

Generations are totally wiped out. I was told that an island of over 700 people is totally gone. Like no one was ever there.

My brother-in-law passed me this link- prepare yourself, it's not pretty. There's is one photo that was taken from a tour boat that looks like there's a 20' cresting wave on the horizon heading right for them. Unbelieveable.

Happily the people in that photo are fine. Here's their story:


A site with alot of video and photos is at http://www.waveofdestruction.org

I don't think the tragedy of it all really hit me till I saw some of the photos. Unbelievably Sad.

Wow, I thought I understood the power of water. But, these videos are beyond what I had comprehended.


It's interesting to see the amateur video people pointing the camera at the ocean saying, wow, that's interesting at first, then wow, that's impressive a little later, then wow, holy shit, get out of here.

Here's some satelite images that confirm what thecraw said.


Not your typical 30 foot wave I guess.
