Yes, that was a devastating one and wreaked havoc in the southern coast of the country. The destruction after these types of natural calamity is huge and it took years to bring things normal in the southern region. People enjoy the holidays during this time to celebrate Christmas and welcome the New Year, so they go on a tour to relax. Coastal areas are always a tourist attraction and people throng the beaches for fun. Because of the crowd during this season, the impact of Tsunamis is very large.
The same thing happened in Indonesia last Saturday. The picture of the destructions displayed through different media is heart-wrenching and it's really hard to imagine the level of destruction and loss of lives.
I pay my homage to all those who lost their lives during the 2004 Tsunami and the recent one in Indonesia and pray to the almighty to give enough strength to their families to move ahead.
