A trip to the last century!


2004: Southeast Asia tsunami

A 9.1 earthquake struck off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia on Dec. 26, 2004. The geological event triggered a series of tidal waves that caused catastrophic damage in 12 different countries throughout Southeast Asia. Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and the Maldives were among the hardest hit, leaving 228,429 people dead or missing. This photo shows tourists in the water as the first of six tsunamis arrived at Thailand's Hat Rai Lay Beach.
