Pretty hard to watch


Tsunami - Caught On Camera - P1 - YouTube

There's 7 parts, just keep clicking the related videos when they run out.

You see some pretty amazing people in it.

The most fascinating thing that I see in all these videos is that people REALLY HAD NO IDEA what was going on. In fact they went WAY down to the water, thinking nothing bad was about to happen.

I cried multiple times during these videos.

I live on the east coast and I often wonder how we'd stand up to things like this. I do think that there are plenty of high rise places that I could go to in case of emergency. However, my grand parents wouldn't survive.

Watch the videos if you wish and tell me what you think. Would THIS ever happen in our country? Are we prepared?

I watched only one of them. It's always hard to watch and the worst viewing, of course, was what we saw on TV when it was happening and knowing so very many lives were lost. Just a few days ago, I had to make a call on my antivirus download. Did a little chat with the man while waiting on PC activity. He asked where I was, weather, etc. I mentioned the tropical storm Debby passing through my area. He said his worst experience was being in the 2004 tsunami. I asked him where he was and he told me but his accent made it difficult to understand.

What would we do if one hit the USA? There's nothing anyone can do against the force of a tsunami. Just hope you're in a high rise like those that didn't get washed away. It's amazing that any building would not be crushed.
