A look back at 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake video footage

This week, two powerful earthquakes hit Indonesia within a matter of days. The death toll has risen above 500 and thousands more are feared dead under collapsed buildings. Officials fear when all is said and done, the death toll will be in the thousands.

The latest earthquake was along the same fault line that spawned the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and tsunami. Below is video of the subsequent damage and recovery efforts.

The 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and resulting tsunami killed 229,866, making it the 2nd most deadly earthquake in recorded history.

Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand were the hardest hit by the earthquake, though a total of 11 countries were affected.

Families living in poor villages and shanty towns don’t have the money and resources to rebuild what little they had before a natural disaster.

After earthquakes, damage to infrastructure can make relief efforts even more difficult.
