The 26 December 2004 tsunami was caused by a massive earthquake of magnitude 9.0 off western Sumatra. The tsunami waves propagated in the Indian Ocean with an amplitude of between 0.5 to 1 m. The tsunami waters surged on all coastlines of the Indian Ocean, but the impact was most dramatic in Aceh (Indonesia), Sri Lanka, India and Thailand.
