Wow, that is really sad. I actually thought that tsunami came in as one huge wave and just instant-whopped. Instead the water seems to rise, fast enough that you can't go anywhere, but slow enough that you can watch it. It is terrifying! My heart goes out to all those people.
I'm glad that site had a link to Doctors Without Borders. I've been thinking about donating some money, but didn't know where to start. The Doctors Without Borders is one organization I know I can respect, so I'll be donating to them for sure.
Sisqo, there are no tsunami's in Texas, but you never know when that twister is going to hit. Hey, I'm in Kansas, I've seen what a tornado can do. Oh, and though not as likely as in Asia, I'd imaginge a strong enough earthquake in Central America could send some big waves to the Gulf of Mexico.
What I'm really trying to say is that no place is 100% safe from a natural disaster. Once in a while the nature likes to remind us who's really in charge.
