2004, a tsunami triggered by a magnitude 9.1 earthquake in Indonesia completely destroyed coastal settlements around the Indian Ocean, leaving at least 225,000 people dead in dozens of countries. Killed The reason behind the large number of casualties was that many populations were not given any warning.

The warning system of local sensors, which detect the height of waves and earthquakes, also failed to issue a clear alert. Many of the sensors were not repaired so they were not working, while in many coastal areas there was no warning system with a siren.


According to eyewitness accounts, the elephants fled to higher ground, the birds left their nests in the lowlands and the dogs were reluctant to come out.

Locals in Bangkok, a Thai coastal village, say a herd of buffalo on the beach suddenly made a noise and looked out to sea, then ran to the top of a nearby mountain a few minutes before the tsunami hit.

"Survivors also saw animals such as cows, goats, cats and birds that survived the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and the tsunami," said Irina Rafliana, who was part of the UN's International Disaster Strategy Advisory Group.
