Boxing Day, Tsunami now twelve years ago

Boxing Day, Tsunami now twelve years ago


It's Boxing Day, Tsunami now twelve years ago when so many people perished after a 9.1 magnitude earthquake that set off the Indian Ocean tsunami. Centered off the west coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island, it was the world's third-largest earthquake since 1900. Approximately 230.000 have estimated to have been killed by this tsunami.
