Holy Shit

"What was coming towards us was a wall of foam, sand and white water."

New Zealander Michael Clark was on a cruise ship off a small low-lying island in the Maldives on Sunday morning when a powerful tsunami rocked southeast Asia. "It hit the island and went literally over the island and into the lagoon. Then it decided to come towards us."

"There was a wall of water, only about two-feet tall, but there was an incredible amount of water behind it surging forward," he told National Radio via satellite telephone.

"It literally sucked all the water inside the atoll out to sea again and then it came back in again about three times."

The wave washed over the tiny island, which was about 120m by 40m and used by resorts as a picnic spot, he said.

"There was a lot of furniture on the island and it all got washed out so there were tables and chairs and people's personal effects. Things were washed around all over the place."
