Reports show that four times as many women died then men in the boxing day tsunami. Many wives were caught on the beaches while waiting for their husbands to return from their jobs on fishing boats or they was at home attending to their children.
The Boxing Day tsunami which devastated Asia killed four times as many females as men, new figures reveal. Women were caught waiting on the beaches for fishermen or at home looking after the children. Research carried out by Oxfam shows the pattern was the same in Indonesia, India and Sri Lanka.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Today is 3 months since the tsunami hit 11 countries. Nearly 280,000 people were killed, a majority were female. Those that study the fault line where the quake hit say, it is unstable and they expect another large quake. I hope if another quake comes that they get advanced warning before a tsunami hits.
