December 26th 2004

In January we posted a piece by Lewis Mathews about the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004; Lewis was in Sri Lanka on holiday when the disaster struck. Now, Ciara O'Driscoll writes about her reaction as she watched the television images helplessly from her home in Singapore :

It didn’t feel like an earthquake which would register 8.9 on the Richter Scale. Tucked up in my bed in my home in Singapore, it felt rather as if an extremely large lorry had rolled past my window.
