    11/1/06 Booklist
    This entry follows other titles in the Natural Disaster series by covering not only the causes and effects of a catastrophe but also recovery efforts undertaken in its wake, and preventive measures taken later. Here, the author focuses on the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which claimed more than 200,000 lives in more than two dozen countries. Between an account of the tsunami's disastrous course and a set of child-friendly Web sites and other resources, she discusses the range of geological events that cause such waves; the difficulties many affected countries had, first in warning coastal residents, then in coping with the damage; and, finally, the extent of early-detection instruments and strategies that have since been deployed. Enhanced by plenty of full-page color photos, plus advice for readers who live in susceptible areas, this study provides an unusual perspective on the tragedy, and so complements earlier books on the topic.
