On December 26th, 2004, a few minutes after 12 o'clock noon, a tsunami struck Phuket, Thailand. This tsunami was generated by an Indian Ocean earthquake of a magnitude between 9.1 and 9.3 on the west coast of Sumatra. It killed over 230,000 people in fourteen countries.
These are the images of the tsunami arriving in Phuket on a section of Bang Tao beach. Many of the images appearing in this book have been published as front pages or double layouts in the major international newspapers and magazines.
