TsunamisBook - 2006
On December 26, 2004, a powerful earthquake occurred below the Indian Ocean near Indonesia. The quake caused a tsunami, as waves raged across the ocean and struck coastal areas with no warning, leaving devastation behind. At least 225,000 people died, hundreds of thousands were injured, and more than 1 million were left homeless. This book will examine tsunamis, explaining what they are, what causes them, how scientists study them and the destruction they leave in their wake.
