Abstract

During the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, Sri Lanka was one of the hardest hit countries in the affected region. The tsunami impact was most severe in the island’s East and South. It was the first tsunami that occurred in Sri Lanka in living memory. Therefore, Sri Lanka was entirely unprepared for such an event.
