Caption: Tsunami. Nagappattinam, India, after the tsunami of 26 December 2004. This Ikonos satellite image was taken on 29 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. Nagappattinam is an important port 260 kilometres south of Chennai (Madras) on the eastern side of India.
