Tsunami Devastates Southeast Asia
A series of powerful earthquakes unleashed massive tidal waves across Asia killing more than an estimated 50,000 people
in six different countries. Earthquakes originating off the west coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra triggered the tsunamis.
Villages and resorts were slammed with waves of water, some reaching as high as 20 feet. The strongest earthquake measured
8.9 on the Richter scale, making it the most powerful earthquake in 40 years.
It seems certain that the death toll will rise and that the destruction will be unthinkable. Families across Southeast
Asia, stricken by disaster during this holiday season, need your help to recover and rebuild - many have lost everything.
