THE BACKGROUND
 

One of the world's most powerful undersea earthquakes unleashed a tsunami that crashed into Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and the Maldives on Sunday 26 Dec,2004, claiming more than 166,000 lives. The earthquake of magnitude 8.9,255 km SSE of Banda Aceh, North Sumatra occurred as a result of the convergence of the Indian and Asian tectonic plates, with the Indian plate moving approx northeast. The devastating tsunami was a direct consequence of the earthquake, which caused movement of the sea floor all along the length of rupture, displacing a huge volume of water and generating the tsunami wave. Affected areas include Thailand, Sri Lanka and other coastal areas of the Bay of Bengal, which have all reported wide scale damage and death.

In Indonesia, 104,000 people were listed as killed. The worst affected area was Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh province. This provincial capital, once home to more than 655,500 people, was flattened and splintered. Indonesia said half a million people were homeless in Aceh.

In Sri Lanka, an island nation, one of the worst affected countries with more than estimated 30,000 people died and another 800,000 were homeless

.In Tamil Nadu there were scenes of mayhem in coastal areas where scores of villages were under water. India’s death toll being 15,000.

On one island at Andaman and Nicobar islands, the surge of water triggered by the cataclysmic undersea earthquake killed two-thirds of the population. The surge battered thousands of miles of coastline in a vast arc from Indonesia to Tanzania.

Fishing villages, ports and resorts were devastated, power and communications cut and homes destroyed. The cost of the devastation was estimated to be in billions of dollars with Hundreds of thousands of livelihoods gone. The emergency relief operation, probably the biggest in history, was up against debris-clogged harbors, power outages, washed-away roads and shattered towns in a race to save millions from dehydration and disease and halt a spiraling death toll.

Up to five million people lacked the basic essentials to survive. The global health body said between one and three million of those affected were in Indonesia, with another one million in Sri Lanka. The rest were spread between India, the Maldives, Thailand and other nations.

Getting water purification tablets to survivors and building rudimentary toilets was the focus of efforts to fend off diarhoea, respiratory and skin diseases. An unprecedented global catastrophe needing a fitting response and very difficult situation to reach and care for the five million homeless.

The tragedy was bigger than anyone can imagine, The aftermath an even greater challenge and trauma.
