During the days after the Tsunami there had been not enough police or other security forces around and wildest rumors were spreading fast.
Certainly the amount of crime went explosive and even years after the Tsunami the authorities were investigating into many cases of cruelest crime.
After the Tsunami Unawatuna and Galle had been in a sad state as these videos with also eyewitness interviews reveal.

Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa had been looking really good a few days before the Tsunami and many tourists were having a great time.
After the Tsunami Surfcity guest house owner had talked about surfing and the recovery of Unawatuna.
Unawatuna main road saw various groups that were stopping cars and pretty much everyone coming by.
Interesting to see that stick which was used to block the road.

Never before Unawatuna beach and the water had turned so ugly and where only a few hours before thousands of happy tourists were celebrating a wonderful Christmas 2004, there was nothing left but trails of devastation and agony.
