    139139Eyewitness accounts detailed in~\cite{papadopoulos06} report that most people at Patong Beach observed an initial retreat of the shoreline of more than 100m followed a few minutes later by a strong wave (crest). Another less powerful wave arrived another five or ten minutes later. Eyewitness statements place the arrival time of the strong wave between 2 hours and 55 minutes to 3 hours and 5 minutes after the source rupture (09:55am to 10:05am local time).

     141\subsubsection{Video Evidence}
     142Two videos were sourced from the internet which include footage of the tsunami in Patong Bay on the day of the Indian Ocean Tsunami. Both videos show an
     143already inundated town, they then show what is to be assumed as the second and third waves approaching and further flooding the town. The first video
     144is in the very north of the town filmed from what is believed to be the roof of the Novotel Hotel. The second video is in the very south of the town
     145filmed from a building next door to the Comort Resort. Crude flow rates can be estimated with landmarks and the use of a GIS and were found to be in the range of 5 to 7 metres per second in the north and 0.5 to 2 metres per second in the south. This is in agreement with results from our simulations.
