When I saw the purported tsunami photo accompanying the “Village trustee, the explorer and the tsunami” article in the Feb. 2 WEDNESDAY JOURNAL, it immediately struck me as a fake. And indeed it is. According to the Snopes Urban Legends website, the photo you published is a doctored picture of the skyline of Antofagasta, Chile.

Shame on you for spicing up your story with such an obviously doctored photograph.
