FIRST HAND STORY: Shenth Ravindra on train in Sri Lanka

"...it wasn't a wave, as such, like a curl with a surf..."

British tsunami survivor Shenth Ravindra said he didn't know what was happening when the Queen of the Sea passenger train jerked to a stop near the Sri Lankan town of Galle -- he just heard screams and saw people running in terror.

EXCERPT:
The second wave hit about a half-hour later with "an almighty crash," he said.
"This wave took up, it must have been 85 percent of the horizon, and it was coming toward us," Ravindra said. "It wasn't a wave, as such, like a curl with surf, it was just a wall, like a cliff face of water and coming straight for us." He said there was a lot of panic as passengers tried to brace themselves and hang on to the children on board."The second wave hit the train as it was at this angle and it sort of pushed the train inland to the point where it got wedged against the house. And I was able to jump from the top of this train to the top of this house and climb up as high up onto the roof as possible," Ravindra said.

Nice Blog!!! It looks like you've spent a fair amount of time setting it up and keeping the content fresh. I'll be sure to come back.

I have a online dating blog. It pretty much covers dating advice related stuff.

Thanks again and keep up the good work.
