Indian Ocean Earthquake & Tsunami Kendall buRlison

In 2004, a massive tsunami created around the Indian Ocean. Though this Tsunami was triggered by another weather catastrophe which was the the 9.0 earthquake in Indonesia.

When theIndia and Burma tectonic plates shifted, this created an earthquake and began both of these natural disasters to take flight.

These weather conditions caused an abundance of destruction of countries around the Indian Ocean and reached far enough to hit the east coast of Africa.
