    Things like this are why our ancestors spoke of world floods and angry gods

    Unbelievably horrible. That's where the missing 15,000 people are.

    It's surreal - like something out of a disaster movie. Seeing the few people trying to flee in their cars, knowing that they are driving into the tsunami coming at them from another direction is truly heartbreaking.

    Wow, that's heartbreaking beyond words. Nothing can describe how terrible that is.

    Mercifully it did not give us graphic images of the many that were crushed, maimed, drowned, but you know in your heart there were living beings in some of those buildings and vehicles.

    There is still much need for prayers and contributions to appropriate organizations who will be on the front lines helping the people dig out and rebuild.

    And yet it remains necessary for our survival.

    Horrifying, absolutely horrifying!

    I had not seen that clip, but of the clips I have seen, I can not imagine going through that. Our prayers and aid are definitely still needed.

    That was OMAZING footage!

    The estimated number of dead that I keep hearing seems to be many orders of magnitude lower than I would expect, however, I think that many hundreds of thousands of people had been saved by heeding the tsunami warning system.
