Re: What the Tsunami Dredged Up (off topic)



I read that the depth of parts of the straits between Sumatra and Malaysia
have suddenly decreased from something like 4000 feet to 150 feet - how that
would be shallow enough to be dangerous for shipping - I'm sure I don't have
those figures right.

But the question is what did the straits fill up with.

Someone suggested it might be full of tall buildings and buses.
