Amateur footage shows the first impact of the Sumatera earthquake in Aceh, Indonesia. It shows torrents of water surging through streets, causing total devastation. In some cases you see entire houses being swept away.

It’s now being estimated that the death toll in Aceh, the region worst hit by last Sunday’s tsunami, may exceed 400,000.

Via the BBC.

Update: Joe Gandelman posting at Dean’s World calls it one of the most shocking videos he’s seen.
