south asian earthquake and tsunamis

I’m too far inland to have felt anything myself, but two of my colleagues are travelling in southern Thailand. Thankfully, I heard from Tracy last night, and she and Max are safe. She reported that they literally missed a tidal wave by minutes and that the place where they were planning to dive (off Phi Phi) was hit hard. Hundreds who were there are still missing. As for my other colleague – no word yet, but I’m not sure where exactly she and her husband had decided to holiday.
