VIDEO of SECOND WAVE

If you have high speed internet - you can download a video that a dutch man shot from the rooftop of his hotel. Right click on this link, choose SAVE, and then when download is done - OPEN.

What you see here is the SECOND wave - that pushed 15 feet of water three blocks in to the city. You can see it as he zooms to the left up the block.

When the water then abruptly receeded - so much was also sucked out to sea...

This second video shows again the second wave. This man in high on third story of the beachfront hotel. It shows dramatic footage of what happened.
