Now the news is saying that up to 11,500 have been killed by the earthquake and resulting tsunamis.  What a pity!  Does anyone have a firsthand account of this catastrophe?  Did you feel it?   

Perhaps LGK?  Is everything OK there?

I don't think we had any effects here in Hainan

In fact, I just heard about it today (I got really busy and didn't look at the news for several days)

One of my friends went out surfing to see if there were any latent waves around Hainan today.

The death toll has risen to 14425, according to chinadaily

So many people and families are unfortune!
Tragedies are so frequent: mine explosion, traffic accident…
Safety is felicity.

Point the finger

"COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (CNN) -- Weeping residents combed through debris and stunned tourists meandered through litter-strewn streets on Monday, a day after tsunamis swept across the Indian Ocean from Thailand to Somalia, killing at least 23,000 people."
My question is, (and I could not find it), WHAT WAS THE TIME SPAN FROM THE TIME OF THE EARTHQUAKE AND THE TIDAL WAVE?
Seems to me that someone could have warned the Mayors of the city and some sort of evacuation should have taken place.
This is the time to help and mourn, but with technology we have today, this is such a waste of life.
