The first we knew of the Asian Earthquake was when my Dad sent my sister a text from the area saying all was okay - we hadn't yet put the news on, so we didn't know what he was referring to.

Sent to this website (in a comment to an unrelated post) was this:

Just had the tidal wave - all OK except me - I hurt my leg a little but still walking.

Flippant: Hmm, wonder if he has photos?
