Scarey time standing in waist deep water at Pines beach as earthquake hit.Could barely stand ,seabed heaving ,thoughts of drowning
going through head.By the time I got to shore the tide had receded another 50m and more spookily was the big surf of 4-5ft dropping
to 1-2 as I watched it.Jumped in suzuki and then another violent shaking.At the Mac point the beach looked all different and
liquifaction all over the place.A few cars stuck fast in sand.Water everywhere in Kiaraki and stunned people everywhere.So sad
for the people in town.
