  • 1. Tsunami of 2004
    By: Brendan Daly and Andrew Benedict
    Tsunami of Indonesia
    By: Brendan Daly and Andrew Benedict
  • 2. Earthquake
    Was a 9.0 magnitude earthquake under the Indian ocean
    Near the west coast of Indonesia
    The tectonic plates let out an enormous amount of water
    This sent a powerful shock waves in every direction
    The earthquake was the result of the siding of the India plate under the section called Burma plate
  • 3. Earthquake
    The earthquake’s energy was equal to 23,000 Hiroshima-type atomic bombs.
    The earthquake has been building for hundreds of years, but for some reason it suddenly unleashed on December 26, 2004.
    The earthquake effected areas within more than 600 miles.
    Largest magnitude in 40 years.
  • 4. How a Tsunami Occurs
    An earthquake occurs under the ocean, which displaces massive amounts of water
    Can occur in both shallow and deep water
    Most destruction occurs in shallow water
    Causes large destructive waves
    Total energy of tsunami equals five megatons of TNT (twice the amount of explosive used in World War II)
  • 5. How a Tsunami Occurs (cont.)
    Takes up to seven hours to reach land from the earthquake
    Victims were taken by surprise
    First warning of is when the earthquake happens
    Ocean recedes making very shallow water
    People thought that they could go in the shallow water, but the huge wave came and destroyed them
  • 6. How Tsunami Arrivies
    Can arrive at coastline in one-two days
    Can arrive rapidly or slowly
    A warning sign is when the water goes out to sea and concedes, followed by a sudden enormous body of water (huge wave)
    Another warning sign is when the sea rises very quickly, instead of receding
    This means that the warnings are hard to notice
  • 7. Tsunami
    More than 150,000 people died or went missing
    1,000,000 people became homeless
    Most destructive tsunami in history
    Tsunami was 1.24 miles high
    Caused destruction in 11 countries
    Killed people 2,000km away from the shoreline
