What terrible news.  I hadn't heard anything about this.  My heart goes out to the friends/family of everyone who died in this catastrophe.  :heart:

Can you believe that I just spent close to an hour browsing six different news channels and NONE of them reported on this?? What day did this happen?

Shit, that is tragic. Believe it or not, in earlier times, tsunamis and earthquakes like this killed 100,000's...not 10,000. Thank God it was only 10,000 as it could have been MUCH more. 10,000 is still a huge loss of life and terribly sad. Hopefully they can rebuild and move on.

It's probably a lot more than 10,000 sadly... We won't know the actual death toll for a few weeks I'd imagine.

The waves even hit the coastline of Somali, more than 6,000 km away.

I'm afraid the worst is yet to come.. You can basically expect cholera to follow in the wake of a catastrophe like this and the fishermen are hard hit, the small fishermen that feed the poor. Then there's salination of soil.

On the second day of Christmas while we were coping with yesterday's turkey whole neighborhoods were swept away by a six meter flood ramming the shore..

In my country it's customary to celebrate New Year's Eve with lots of fireworks. Despite the diehard pyro I am, this years fireworks money goes directly to their aid :heart:



The December Flood of 2004

On the Second Christmas Day
The Ocean washed their Lives away
Without a warning the water came
In death the rich and poor are same
Many thousands on this day drowned
Their own street their burial ground
We sit and sigh by the TV
It happened to them not you or me
But on the Second Christmas Day
The Ocean washed their Lives away

Asia wakes to tidal catastrophe

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/4126971.stm

More than 11,500 people are known to have died after a massive underwater earthquake sent giant waves crashing into coastlines across southern Asia.

Global aid teams have joined the effort to find the thousands still missing and to bring help to the hurt and homeless.

The toll from the disaster is set to spiral in the worst-hit areas of Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and Thailand.

The 9.0 magnitude quake - the worst in the world for 40 years - struck under the Indian Ocean off western Indonesia.

It generated a wall of water that sped across thousands of kilometres of sea.

Earlier readings by the US Geological Survey had given a magnitude of 8.9 for the quake but this was raised after further tests.

More than 4,100 died in Indonesia, 4,300 in Sri Lanka and 2,900 in India.

Casualty figures are rising over a wide area, including resorts in Sri Lanka and Thailand packed with holidaymakers.

Exact numbers of people killed, injured or missing in the countries hit, are impossible to confirm.

Hundreds are still thought to be missing from coastal regions and, in Sri Lanka alone, officials say more than a million people have been forced from their homes.

Sri Lankan President Chandrika Kumaratunga declared a national disaster and the military has been deployed to help rescue efforts.

Hundreds of fishermen are missing off India's southern coast, and there are reports of scores of bodies being washed up on beaches.

In Indonesia, communications remain difficult, particularly to the strife-torn region of Aceh where the main quake, early on Sunday morning, was followed by nine aftershocks. Reports speak of bodies being recovered from trees.

A national disaster has been announced in the low-lying Maldives islands, more than 2,500km (1,500 miles) from the quake's epicentre, after they were hit by severe flooding.

The Indian-owned Andaman and Nicobar islands, much nearer the epicentre, were also badly hit.

Casualty reports could not be officially confirmed, but a police chief told reporters 300 people had died and another 700 were feared dead.

Waves forced out from the earthquake are even reported to have reached Somalia, on the east coast of Africa.

And as far away as the Seychelles, nine people were reported missing as a two-metre surge struck.

Resort 'wiped out'

International aid agencies have called for a rapid response to the emergency to avert further deaths.

The European Union immediately pledged 3m euros (?2.1m) to disaster relief efforts.

Messages of condolences have poured in from around the world.

US President George W Bush offered aid to affected nations and expressed sorrow for the "terrible loss of life and suffering".

Harrowing reports of people caught in the devastation and dramatic tales of escape are emerging.

Jayanti Lakshmi, 70, had gone shopping with her daughter-in-law in Cuddalore, southern India. Ms Lakshmi returned to find her son and twin grandsons dead in their hut.

"I wish I had died instead of the others, my daughter-in-law would have a life. I can't bear to watch her pain," she said.

In Thailand, hundreds of holiday bungalows are reported to have been destroyed on the popular Phi Phi island.

Sunday's tremor - the fifth strongest since 1900 - had a particularly widespread effect because it seems to have taken place just below the surface of the ocean, analysts say.

Bruce Presgrave of the US Geological service told Reuters news agency: "These big earthquakes, when they occur in shallow water... basically slosh the ocean floor... and it's as if you're rocking water in the bathtub and that wave can travel throughout the ocean."

Experts say tsunamis generated by earthquakes can travel at up to 500km/h.

Cambodia is shielded from the tsunamis by Thailand. Phnom Pen lies about 100 miles inland measured from the quake's epicenter and lies approximately 15 meters above sea level. In Sri Lanka, which was hardest hit, the flood was reported to be 6 meters high.

My websearch on the flood and Cambodia gave no connection.

Krishna: In all likeliness your friends are OK. Relax and calmly see how you can get information. You can call their embassy and inquire but since they will be getting way too much calls calling a travel agency (or airport to check the flights status to Pnomh Pen) is a good option to get more info. But likely there is no need for worry, as they seem to be out of harm's way.

yeah, this makes me feel pretty terrible. I can't complain about my life, am in out of the cold, don't have a job right now and am getting anxious, but these people's lives were completely wrecked from this if they survived. :/
