The tsunami of December 26, 2004 devastated thousands of communities along the coastline of the Indian Ocean. More than 240,000 people were killed. Tens of thousands went missing and are presumed dead, and more than a million people were displaced. Those most affected by the tsunami were the poor, including fi sher folk, coastal workers with small retail or tourist businesses, workers in the tourism industry, migrants, and those who farmed close to coastal areas.
KIHEI (Jan. 28) - The Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) on Maui has deployed the Southeast Asia and Indian Ocean Tsunami Response Map Viewer to support response and recovery efforts following the devastating tsunami of Dec. 26.
The Map Viewer is a web-based display and navigation tool offering another means of accessing geographic information available through the Indian Ocean Tsunami Geospatial Information Service, launched by the Pacific Disaster Center nearly a month ago.
