1-Year Anniversary

By  | 

Various low-key ceremonies marked the beginning of low-key events to honor the first anniversary of the Southeast Asian Tsunami. That is where 216,000 people died or went missing in one dozen countries across the region, last December 26. Half of the village was wiped out by the Tsunami. On December 26, commemoration events will be held in all of the 12 countries affected by the tsunami, which was triggered by a magnitude-9 earthquake deep beneath the waters of the Indian Ocean.
