December 30, 2004 - Eight south Asian nations have been adversely affected by Sunday’s 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunamis (tidal waves). The world's most powerful earthquake in 40 years struck deep under the Indian Ocean off the west coast of Sumatra early Dec. 26, triggering tidal waves up to 20 feet high. Over 120,000 people have lost their lives and untold millions have been left without food, shelter and safe drinking water.
