Photos of the Hangchou tidal bore in China. These were first posted mistakenly as being of the tsunami of Dec 26, 2004, the information provided when the photos were sent. However, readers provided information that, after some googling, showed these are of the Hangchou annual event, when the bore comes in especially large. As such, they have been deleted from the main nwcitizen page, and placed here for reader interest.

People are often injured when the wave is larger than expected - as these photos obviously show.
