Australian dust storm picture from 2002, used as a hoax to shock the world saying it was “1/2 a second before tsunami on Sumatra”
The web has had this picture circulating with the following fake text:
“This picture was found in a camera during the Sumatra cleanup. This is a fantastic photo!! Amazing that the film was still good – or memory stick. Either one, this really tells the story. Look at how high that wall of water is. 1/2 a second before tsunami.
This picture was taken on the banks of Sumatra Island (the height of waves was of approx. 32 m = 105 ft).
It was found saved in a digital camera, after the disaster. We cannot know for sure, but very likely the one who took the picture is not
alive any more (it was just a matter of seconds). Today we can see the last image he/she saw before ending life on Earth.”
The truth about this picture: The picture was actually taken in 2002 in Deniliquin NSW Australia where they were hit by a dust storm. The big wall that looks like a wave, is a huge blanket of dust moving over a residential area. The original photo has a date stamp on it.
