Product Description:

On December 26, 2004, an underwater earthquake off the coast of Indonesia generated a massive tsunami that resulted in one of the worst natural disasters in modern history. With tidal waves measuring up to 100 feet, the tsunami broke along the shores of southeast Asia with a devastating force that destroyed hundreds of communities and claimed the lives of nearly 300,000 people. Hardest hit were countries with coastal areas along the immediate Indian Ocean rim: Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, the Maldives, Myanmar, Malaysia, and especially Indonesia, where entire villages were buried under water. Filmed shortly after the Asian tsunami, this episode of PBS's NOVA series takes a look at the science of earthquakes and tsunamis as well as the specific circumstances that made the 2004 event so deadly.
