The tsunami completely demolished this house in Kreung Raya

June 10, 2010
The tsunami completely demolished this house in Kreung Raya and wedged oil drums into the roof. This photo was taken by Dr. Jose Borrero of the University of Southern California Tsunami research group. Borrero traveled to various locations throughout Sumatra following the tsunami to collect data and take photographs. Among the places he visited in addition to Kreung Raya were Banda Aceh, Lhoknga, Panteraja, Lhokkreut, Lhokseumawe and Idi. Travel to these locations was made possible by grants from the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute and the National Science Foundation. Logistical support and support on the ground were made possible by the National Geographic Society. To learn more about Borrero's trip and read his daily notes, visit his Web page on the Tsunami Research Center Web site. [One of two related images. See Next Image.] (Date of Image: January 2005)
