This is a brief overview of the Tsunami.

An Earthquake in divers places caused the wave to come.Without any warning, few people had a chance to get ready.
One man had the conviction to pray on his knees at 3:30am.
One man at an orphanage was able to get to his boat and load his orphan children in it, before the wave demolished everything in its path. Women and children were left without husbands and fathers. Some children were left without parents. Wives watched their husbands, as they washed out to sea. Sinks, cabinets, and bath tubs all floated out to sea.
One woman held onto a tree until the wave passed. Her boyfriend was washed out to sea. After the Tsunami, families waited for food and water in despair. Their confusion was evident, as mother and children waited to see where they would live. The whole area that had been populated had disappeared in an instant. From the air it looked like a deserted oasis. The day before, it was a town.
