On December 26th, 2004, a huge earthquake (9.0 on the Richter scale) hit Aceh and surrounding areas. The epicenter of the quake was in the ocean. The quake was then followed by tsunamis which then hit the surrounding area as far as Srilanka and Maldives. The effect was devastated! More than 100.000 were dead, of which 80.000 were from Indonesia. We are shocked, dazed, and sad.
