My god... Look at this video from the second wave that hit. You see the water rising, furniture floating, and two people that look like they are literally swept away. I have no idea if they survived, and the webpage it is from is in another language. If you have a few minutes to download it and watch it, it's well worth your time.

UPDATE: Here's a place to see three different videos. Very powerful.
PICTURE UPDATE: Here's an interesting report from Digital Global. You can see how far inland the water rose.
