I'll never forget the disbelief I felt when I watched the scenes on television. The 26 December is Boxing Day in the UK so we were all still in holiday mood making the shock somehow even worse - the contrast.

I do hope everyone is recovering as well as the people shown on the video.

I also remember my own feelings of shock and disbelief, Sheila. As with a lot of disasters, we often tend to forget about it after a while and move on to something else - which is why I thought it a good opportunity to remember this and get an update on what has happened.
