on 26th/dec/2004, two tectonic plates,(largest in the world) released a 9.1 magnitude earthquake,the world record breaking quake lasted for 9minutes and brought devastation of unimaginable scale.before the dust could settle,the islands surrounding the epi centers were hit by a tsunami that existed only in movies.


the actual number of fatalities 2004_Indonesia_Tsunami_Complete.gif will never be known,the waves killed one person in mombasa and 200 in somali.in one instance the force of the tsunami derailed a passenger train drowning over 1500 lives 2004_Indonesia_Tsunami_Complete.gif images.jpg


As if that was a child play,the force moved the axis with 17cm,shortened a normal day and permanently changed the map of the world.

The Chile's (Valdivia earthquake) was recorded in 1960. tops the list for strongest earthquakes, With a whopping 9.5 magnitude. The earthquake also caused a large tsunami that damaged the shores of Hawaii, Japan, Australia and New zealand. hii ya 26th/dec/2004 ilikuwa mtoto.

the devastation in 1960 was lower than 2004 due to populations.the ere are 1655 known fatalities from the quake

The feeling of an earthquake/tremor is very weird - it shakes someone to the core. I encountered a tremor in the 80's and it shook me in ways I've never known again. I shudder (pun intended) at the thought of how a full-fledged quake would feel like!

It has been said here before [Na sijui mnataka kuambiwa mara ngapi] There is no country in the world called Somali. Just Somalia. Somali ni MTU ama WATU. AAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!
