Caption: Tsunami. Coastline of Chennai (Madras), India before (left) and after (right) the tsunami of 26 December 2004. These Ikonos satellite images were taken on 14 August 2004 and 29 December 2004 respectively. 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. Boats from the marina can be seen to have been hurled ashore by the force of the wave.
