government help
2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami

by Remy Kenyon

before and after
The December 2004 tsunami destroyed coral reefs, mangrove forests and seaweed beds.
From 2004 to 20011, a company helped more than 1.3 million people in India , Indonesia , Somalia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
The locals did some of the recovery , they all got together and discussed their ideas and all helped each other. they got some companies to help them and Australia helped as well. the community was restored with stuff from the government and companies. doctors and hospitals helped people that were injured. food and water came from government.
Governments have worked hard since at developing better tsunami detection and evacuation plans for the Indian Ocean. Tsunamis, however, are still highly unpredictable and deaths can't yet be entirely avoided.
They know [governments]how devastating the tsunami was so now they have put stuff in places so now on not so much people will be killed.
we don't really have any control of the water but we could warn the community if we see a tsunami or feel a little shake.
thanks for watching
