Monday, December 27, 2004

9 countries affected by the tsunami, namely, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Myanmar, Somalia, Maldives and Bangladesh.
9.0-magnitude earthquake strongest in
40 years and
4th-largest in a century.
20-foot tidal waves ravaged coasts across
1000s of miles and killed nearly
13,500 people.
1,000,000 people were driven from their homes in Indonesia and Sri Lanka alone,
25,000 soldiers and
10 air force helicopters were deployed in relief and rescue efforts.
1 1/2 hours for the wave to get from the earthquake to Sri Lanka and
1 hour for it to get to the west coast of Thailand and Malaysia.
