Caption

During tsunami. Image 3 of 4. Satellite image of the Sri Lankan resort area of Kalutara, during the tsunami flooding of 26 December 2004. The swirling ocean is receding here (left), leaving muddy water among the buildings and trees. The water reached at least a kilometre inland, as far at the right- hand edge of the image. The flooding was caused by a massive underwater earthquake, around 2000 kilometres to the east near Indonesia, that formed huge waves, or tsunamis, that spread across the Indian Ocean, killing over 150,000. Quickbird satellite image. For this coastline before and during the tsunami, see images E275/042-045.
