Introduction

On the morning of December 26, 2004, a tsunami ripped through the Indian Ocean, hitting Thailand's Western Andaman Coast, leaving a path of destruction and devastation in its wake. According to the UN Office of the Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery, in Thailand 8,212 people died, 2,817 are still missing (presumed dead) and approximately 6,000 people were displaced by the natural disaster. People were left completely bewildered by the event, since no tsunami-related education or precautions had never been implemented or practiced within Thailand.
