    10. 10. Tsunami effects • The effects of a tsunami are devastating. They are one of the world's worst natural disasters that can hit a country. • The effects of the tsunami on the country during this period range from destruction and damage, death, injury, millions of dollars in financial loss, and long lasting psychological problems for the inhabitants of the region.
    11. 11. •Tsunami damage and destruction • Death • There is very little warning before Tsunamis hit. This means that people living in towns and villages on the coast do not have time to escape. • People may also be killed if a building is knocked down by the tsunami and it hits them. They can also be electrocuted if wires fall down into the water or they may be killed by fires or explosions.
    12. 12. • Cost--- • There is immediately a massive cost when tsunamis happen. Rescue teams come in to the area and victims of the tsunami need to be treated. • Governments around the world may help with the cost of bringing aid to a tsunami-hit area. There might also be appeals and donations from people who have seen pictures of the area in the media.
    13. 13. Psychological effects Tsunami victims suffer psychology problems in the days and weeks after the destruction. This could even continue for years - often their entire life time. A study by the World Health Organisation on survivors of the tsunami in Sri Lanka on December 24 2004 found that three to four weeks after the tsunami between 14 and 39 per cent of the children had post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
