Tsunamis have occurred before and will happen again. If you live in a coastal town or village then

the effect can be total devistation. The fact that this Tsunami affected a wide perimeter around the Indian Ocean, and therefore many countries with many towns and

villages, then it has made big news, which brings big awareness..... firstly to the needs of the effected and secondly to the activity of the planet we are pottering

around on.

Here is a site that has before and after comparitive photographs, some of which show the great extent of alterations in some areas.

Yes, "It will never happen to me" is a sentence that should be wisely silenced if anyone lives on any of the coasts of the major oceans.
The

pics are great to show reality of changes enforced by nature moving. Us humans aint that 'big' really.

I know what you mean when 'it is so far away or you dont know anyone involved. That is the same, I suppose, with any accident, or incident of

sorts where people have a tragic typr of loss.
On a global scale, it has opened up a lot of eyes as to the size of this planet and that all oceans end at the shore (the

bit where we are).
It is good a lot of help has gone out... well money! (hope it translates into help). Think it is also good that an awakening and action has occurred

in response to the reality of the source of the cause.

In the article it shows 20 sets of pics.
Set 12, Gleebruk Village, shows a clear example of how humans develop

an area around available water, beit for drinking or for transport. In this case the area is a flood plain leading down to the sea.
In the picture it can be clearly seen

that the human made (patterns) structures and plantings are within the flood plain. As, by nature, this area is low lying, relative to the surrounding inland hills, it is easy

to realise what path the incoming Tsunami (huge surge of oceanwater) is first going to sweep through.
The 'after' pic in this set 12, clearly shows an

example of the effect... all human efforts snuffed out.
