Tsunami

Has anyone seen the showing of Mega-Tsunami: 5 Years Later on TLC? It's about the 9.3 magnitude earthquake in 2004 that caused a tsunami on several islands. It killed roughly 250,000 lives.

"The earthquake that generated the great Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 is estimated to have released the energy of 23,000 Hiroshima-type atomic bombs, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)."

  • Just listen to Japan's massive quake that is powerful.  Truly sad what happened over there.
