Caption: Tsunami. Image 1 of 2. Coastline of Aceh province, Sumatra, Indonesia, prior to the tsunami of 26 December 2004. This Landsat image was taken on 13 December 2004. On 26 December an earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter Scale, the largest for 40 years, occurred underwater between the Eurasian and Australian plates off the coast of Indonesia. Shockwaves from this created huge waves, or tsunamis, which have killed over 150,000 and caused massive devastation in the surrounding countries. Taken by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) instrument on NASA's Landsat 7 satellite. For an image of the coast after the tsunami, see record E275/015.
