Tsunami in Indonesia - level 3, A12
Do you remember the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004? It was a terrible disaster created by a strong earthquake and it left 230 000 dead throughout the Indian Ocean. The tsunami was 30 metres high in some places and memories of December 2004 earthquake and tsunami are still fresh.
Another big earthquake hit the Indian Ocean on Wednesday. People in many countries started to evacuate. Even people as far as Kenya and Australia were preparing for the tsunami.
However, the tsunami wasn’t very big this time. It was only about 1 metre high. But it is important to remember that a tsunami is not an ordinary wave and even a small tsunami can scare a lot of people on the beach, as you can see in this video from Indonesia.
