An introduction to the Tsunami Survival Site

Hello. Thank you for visiting the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami Survivor website.

Each individual who survived the tsunami has chosen how to live their life forward. For me, I chose to tell the stories of survivors so that family, students and the world could understand what happened, what it felt like, and what it mean to survive.

If you are a reader, you can find many survivor stories on this site, starting with my own over on the right hand side.

If you are a survivor, please feel free to reach out to me to share your story of survival – both on the day of the tsunami, and the years to come.

A good way to understand the enormity of the event is to first watch this video from the Thompson Reuters Foundation and Media Storm to get a sense of what happened, where and how fast. You can then read more blog posts and stories to learn of what happened.

Please keep the survivors in your thoughts.
