Pictures Of The Tsunami?

Fri Dec 31, 2004 1:14 am

I did a search on the internet, didn't come up with anything. But, I was wondering if anyone knew if there are any pictures of the Tsunami coming ashore? I can only imagine how horrific it would have been to see. If anyone has seen "Deep Impact," I would imagine that the Tsunami had to look something like the scene where the wave caused by an asteroid impact came ashore. Scary as hell.

Also, how is it that these waves can travel so fast? I read somewhere that a wave can travel transpacific in less than a day.

I suppose that most of the people who did have cameras were too busy running thier asses off to stop and take a photo, I know I would be!
