The Tsunami seems to have a predilection for Asia. Consider the earlier tsunamis that happened. They hit Papua New Guinea(1998), Indonesia(1992)and Japan(1993).
The december 26 Tsunami is perhaps the worst of all, in terms of magnitude and effect, killing about two lakhs Asians across a vast strech of South Asia.
Though I'm not a direct victim of this calamity, it had an overwhelming impact on me, and I found myself wailing for the hapless masses who were caught in it.
