Tsunami Story Map of Thailand Map of Phuket Map of Kamala Return

In December 2004 a devastating Tsumani struck South East Asia, destroying Aceh, much of Southern Sri Lanka and many parts of South West Thailand. I was staying in Kamala Village in Phuket at the time and woke up on Boxing Day to find my street was under two metres of water.

The story here was the one I posted to the web shortly afterwards and includes some pictures I took at the time.

You can also look at the report from the BBC website by Tim Fawcett who was with me at the time. BBC Story
