Tsunami in Indonesia - level 2, A12
Do you remember the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004? It was a terrible tsunami which was created by a strong earthquake. 230 000 died after this tsunami came. The tsunami was 30 metres high in some places and some people still remember it very well.
Another big earthquake hit the Indian Ocean on Wednesday. People in many countries started to evacuate. People in countries very far, for example Kenya and Australia, were preparing for the tsunami too.
The tsunami wasn’t very big this time. It was only about 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.
