Tsunami waves triggered by a massive undersea earth quake off Sumatra in Indonesia, caused the sea water rising over Arabian Sea , unlike the normal waves, invaded the land, wreaking havoc and destruction in coastal fishing hamlets.

Fishermen, tourists and people living in the coastal area were unprepared for the waves that rose as high as 6 meters.

High waves swept the coast. The waves hit the area at 11AM, spilled across the land strips to enter the backwaters and lashed the farther banks. The phenomenon recurred twice in the after noon. Hundreds of huts were washed away and fishing canoes anchored on the beach were damaged and fishing nets and other accessories were washed away.

These included three women who were drying fish on the sea shore at Azheekkal near Cherthala and were washed away by the high tides.

Such a phenomenon in sea is not observed or heard in their life , says the old local people. Local people says that the sea water receded some meters back and then raised meters high and hit the shore.
