People work to pump water out of a flooded shopping centre at Patong Beach two days after the tsunami hit. On December 26, 2004, a major earthquake generated tsunamis that ravaged coastlines from Southeast Asia to Africa. Approximately 275,000 people were killed and tens of thousands were left homeless, making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern history.
