Sit tight or run

A friend of mine and her daughter are on a Diving course in Thailand.

Anyway they were under water today, when the Tsunami alarm was raised.

So would it be safer to get out of the water and run for it or dive down and sit on the bottom till it passes over head.:confused2:

My friends were underwater in the Maldives when the tsunami hit Thailand and then the Maldives in 2004. They knew something was up as the fish began to act strangely to begin with. Then the water was swirling around and they were being tossed about. They could see the boats above struggling. They kept control of their bouyancy and surfaced when it was calmer.
