The ocean is one of the most powerful sources in our world. It can destroy in seconds and leave years of pain in its wake. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake that had a epicentre off the west coast of Sumarta, Indonesia led to the loss of life of thousands and effected millions.
The underseamegathrust earthquake was caused when the Indian Plate was subducted by the Burma Plate and triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean with waves up to 30 meters (100 ft) high. It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history. Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand.
