On December the 26th 2004, at 7:58 (local time), the American institute of geology (USGS) detected a seism of exceptional magnitude, 9.0 (Richter scale), in the Indian Ocean. Its epicentre was located off the western coast of northern Sumatra, Indonesia, more precisely at 250 km south/south-east of the town, Banda Aceh, at a depth of 10 km.

The devastating earthquake and Tsunami that struck the Indian Ocean caused the death of over 230.000 people. Eleven countries were impacted, especially the Indonesian province of Aceh (Sumatra), lying close to the epicentre of the earthquake that generated the tidal waves.
