Woke up at 730am this morning to the world service announcing the Tsunami warning. I came around very quickly and rushed down stairs to see the footage on the television. It doesn't matter how many times you see the devastation caused by a Tsunami it just never seems quite real.
I remember the boxing day Tsunami and seeing the footage then and my brain not being able to fully understand what my eyes were seeing.
I have a couple of people that I know in the area where the earth quake took place and in the path of the Tsunami. I have been trying to get messages to them to ensure they are safe.
I have been following twitter and the BBC to find out what is going on.
My thoughts are with all of those affected by this disaster.
Makes the last 6 weeks of my life with all the upheaval since the crash seem quite insignificant in the grand scheme of things.
I am so lucky to have my friends and family.
