I remember this day. My uncle and aunt live there along with my two cousins. When the earthquake came, we're in the middle of phone and suddenly the connection run out. I was 10 years old that day. I don't get it why my father freaked out and crying when he got a news about the big earthquake, follow by tsunami. Our relatives in Medan, nearest place from there still couldn't go in to reach my uncle family. A weeks after, we finally got the news that all of them are survived. My uncle has the fastest reaction because he drags his family to the highest place as soon as he found out the sea turns drained.

It was so tragic because when earthquake come people are come out because they scared of the destroyer building.but after that tsunami come. Can't imagine how was that because all of them not have any experienced about tsunami before so some people even come near beach before tsunami come..
The situation it was like the world end, we can see people die every where...

I’m wondering how come the islanders knew of the tradition of the sea receding etc but others didn’t elsewhere.

If a near identical event happened in the late 2010s- early 2020s, I bet there would be tons of good ( and sad) videos of the waves at nearly every major location impact

As I watch these happen, I just think along time ago there was none of this on this planet. So it just amazes me to think how far we've come with this stuff such as materials that were invented and created by people. And then after these terrible things happen, where does all of the destruction go ??
