I know this was posted yesterday but all the links were either broken or the website so bogged down that I couldn't view any of the videos posted. I found a site that has seven tsunami videos and posting it here for the people that missed it yesterday. Plus I think there is a few videos here that were not posted yesterday.

FYI these have all been posted a few times and are also on Backhoes master tsunami thread.

Apple and Bandwidth I hosted these videos on my .Mac account, after 400,000 visits, Apple decided that they had used too much bandwidth and removed the videos. I (and many others) believe this is a valuable public service. What is the problem? Apple can put up a nice home page but they won't allow bandwidth for these videos to be shared. Make yourself heard: Write to these addresses at Apple about providing bandwidth: .Mac feedback Steve Jobs Feedback PR Brian Mintun (The guy who emailed me initially) Post on the AAPL Yahoo Messageboard

Thought I would try setting up a thread for the posting of pics and videos of the killer tital waves and the aftermath. Add them here and we may end up with a pic/video collection in one place.http://www.dagbladet.no/nyheter/20 Click on these words when you get to the link (site not in English). Dermed kan du selv se hvor sterke vannmassene var da den andre bølgen kom.
Thanks for posting. After watching videos I still have not seen a 30ft wave...wonder if anyone has video of that?

If they did, I imagine they are dead.
Server says: Too many connections.
I've heard of the Slashdot effect, so this must be the Freeper effect.
I've bookmarked the site. Looks like they have a bunch of other videos I need to look at.
It make take several attempts. I got the same message a couple of times.
All the clips we're seeing are from Thailand or Sri Lanka, but we know the worst of it went to Aceh which was 100 miles from the epicenter. The firt video is purportedly from Aceh, and it seems like receding water is at the height of the roofs.
Some of the Aerial shots of the West Sumatran coast (CNN has some, they don't show them for long) show a few hills where, based on how high the trees are stripped bare from the ground, look like the water may have been 50-80 feet high.
bump for later
The aerial shots are somewhat deceptive, too.
If you look closely at many of the buildings being hit in the initial waves, many of those buildings are actually 2 and 3 story buildings. And waves are whitecapping higher than the palm trees.

Bump for later - too many connections now.
SQL is barfing bytes, nybbles and bits all over the place.
You won't see a 30 foot wave. The wave would be 30 ft. at the beach level, but anybody that close would not have survived it. By the time they get inland they are smaller, but still deadly. Look at the video from Indonesia.
I'm amazed at the video we DO have, unbelievable that anyone could survive any of it.
That picture is almost unbelievable. I wonder how the photographer survived. What a frightening death for those about to go under.
>Most of the places where video has survived (at least so >far) did not get the "wall of water" single wave.
Yes, the places that got the big ones aren't here to tell about it. I hear today that there are whole islands that have dissapeared and villages with 150,000 in them are lifeless now.
bump for later
Unbelievable. My original reaction was considerably more vulgar.
All I keep getting is ' closed'....what am I doing wrong?
I havent seen a "30" but the height is from tough to tip and I am not sure if that includes the tidal surge which seems like that was the bulk of the damage
The basic problem in terms of what these look like and what people expect is caused by two things:
1) Movies like "Deep Impact" depicting large curling waves
2) Assorted Cable documentaries that insert footage of big wind-caused tubular curling waves on the north coast of Oahu and whatnot into Tsunami documentaries, because (until last week) there was so little actual footage of tsunamis that looked impressive.
The thing about these tsunami waves is they "break" well offshore. Thus there's no big smooth wall of water marching inland....I think the fact that they've already broken for the most part makes them look a bit smaller on video than they actually are.
The picture you posted is not from this past week. This picture is from a Pacific tsunami that happened a couple of years ago.
