We climbed the tsunami

“I was working here, at the port, when the earthquake started. It was unreal and we were really scared, but it was not the worst yet. When we saw a wave forming in the open sea, it was already too late to do anything. Everything happened really fast. All the people helped us, and we managed to set the ship afloat, we sped up, moving towards the wave. Multiple fishers’ boats were making the best out of their engines, even in danger of an explosion, to face the wave and climb it, before it comes down on us. It was dreadful. However, we survived. These days I am staying here, as it’s all I have, even if I fear another tsunami may come, I still have to stay here.”
