TsunamiA friend of mine sent the following link:
http://jlgolson.blogspot.com/2004/12/tsunami-video.html. It's to a blog called "Cheese and Crackers," and this fellow has assembled a remarkable collection of links about the tsunami disaster. There are links to three home videos taken as the waves arrived, satellite photographs showing before and after conditions of the Sri Lanka coastline, and a gallery of photos taken by a man named Hellmet Issels. These images help convey the unbelievable magnitude of the tsunami--but even looking at the videos and the photos, it's still difficult to fully grasp.
There is also a link on the page to donate via Amazon to the Red Cross.
It is a tragedy of epic proportions.
