At the beginning of the video I tried to guess what buildings would be left standing. I felt that the person filming seemed high enough that he'd be
O.K. I also thought about what I'd do if I was inside one of the buildings below him. I thought I might be safe on top of the roof of one of those
buildings. Reality set in when I watched them being washed away as if they had been made of paper. I would have been washed away with them. The tall
building across from the guy filming looked like it stood up to the tsunami pretty well, and seemed to have survived the earthquake.
If I learned anything from this video, its that when an earthquake like that hits California, the first thing I should do is get in my car and start
racing for the nearest hill. Forget the roof top! I'm about 2 miles from the beach. According to what I've read, the tsunami traveled about 6 miles
inland. I'm not sure how far I can get in 10-15 minutes, especially when everyone else has the same idea I do, and the roads get plugged up with
people trying to get the hell away from the coast. Maybe I'll head for the nearest tall, broad building like the one in the video. Maybe I'll go for
a large multi-level car parking lot. Those buildings are generally sturdier, built from steel and cinder blocks if I'm not mistaken. It's good to
think of an escape plan just in case.
