Earthquake Impact on People
From the above report "analysis of 2004 Sumatra earthquake", we conclude that the earthquake resulted in faulting and slips that created huge tsunami waves. This caused widespread damage in different counters on the Indian Ocean. Lack of awareness and absence of a proper warning system created such havoc. However, this disaster created awareness and led to the development of earthquake and tsunami warning systems in the Indian Ocean. The risk and natural disaster management program at Seychelles is one of them. The implementation of the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (IOTWMS) would help to manage such disasters in the future. Integrated Regional Information Network (IRIN) would help in arranging vital tools for managing such disasters in the Indian Ocean.
