A man climbs a tree, four days after the tsunami which struck South Asia, when a rumour spreads that a second tsunami is about to hit. In the event, this was a false warning.
On 26/12/2004, an underwater earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale triggered a series of tidal waves which caused devastation when they struck dry land. 12 countries were affected by the tsunami, with a combined death toll of over 150,000.
