Summary
On December 26, 2004, an undersea earthquake off the coast of Sumatra triggered a series of tsunamis that claimed more than 250,000 lives and devastated communities in Thailand, Sri Lanka, and India. Scientists present an in-depth exploration of what made the waves so destructive and assess the risks of future catastrophes.
"It couldn't be more topical. In some of its implications, especially about the need to invest more in tsunami-sensing equipment in the Indian Ocean, it couldn't be more prescient or disturbing." -- Daily News (New York)"...this NOVA can be watched, and appreciated, with a sense of urgency." -- Fort Worth Star-Telegram"...both riveting and disturbing." --The New York Times"...an incisive, brooding NOVA." -- The Wall Street Journal"...one of the most extensive looks at the disaster since the barrage of news footage..." -- Chicago Tribune
