Snopes Deams 2 Tsunami Photo Galleries on Internet Urban Legends

Snopes has deamed that two sets of tsunami photos circulating on the net are Urban Legends.

Snopes write up basically notes the city is probably not Phuket and adds the recorded waves were 4m high.

The write up on this sequence notes it is a tidal bore (unusually high tides resulting in waters flowing upstream at high speeds) on the Qian Tang Jiang River, in Hangzhou, China.

Snopes shows this gruesome photo of bodies in the surf is sadly real.
