|From WikiPedia: The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was a magnitude 9.0 undersea earthquake on December 26, 2004 which generated tsunamis that caused one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern history.|
This rare type of earthquake known as a megathrust earthquake struck at 00:58:53 UTC (07:58:53 local time) in the Indian Ocean off the western coast of northern Sumatra, Indonesia. It was the largest earthquake on Earth since the 9.2-magnitude Good Friday Earthquake of 1964, and tied for fourth largest since 1900.
The tsunamis devastated the shores of Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and other countries with waves of up to 15 m in height. Even the east coast of Africa (especially Somalia) was hit, despite being located 4,500 km (2,800 miles) or more west of the epicenter.
The plight of the many affected people and countries prompted a widespread humanitarian response.
