Six weeks after the tsunami hit Banda Aceh on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, it was still difficult to tell where the sea stops and land begins.
Scientists have recorded 1,096 tsunamis since 1900. The Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 caused more devastation than the previous 1,095 tsunamis combined.
