Tsunami in Indonesia - level 1, A12
Do you remember the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004? The tsunami was very big. A big earthquake made this tsunami. 230 000 died after this tsunami came. The tsunami was 30 metres high and some people remember it very well.
Another big earthquake hit the Indian Ocean on Wednesday. People in many countries started to prepare for the tsunami. People in countries very far, for example Kenya and Australia, prepared for the tsunami too.
The tsunami wasn’t very big on Wednesday. It was only 1 metre high, but a tsunami is not a normal wave. And a small tsunami can be very dangerous. You can see a tsunami in Indonesia in the video.
