No, when he felt the earthquake Ignesious did not think about the tsunami. He thought it is an ordinary earthquake. That was why he took his television off the table and put it on the ground. In fact, the Ignesious family did not have any time to discuss and plan their course of action after the tsunami struck. That was why there was only chaos and confusion. The following tells it clearly: “In the chaos and confusion, two of his children caught hold of the hands of their mother’s father and mother’s brother and rushed in the opposite directions.”
