Banda Aceh is a city which was established on April 22, 1205 by Sultan Alaidin Johansyah, is one of the oldest Islamic city in the South-East of Asia.
On December 26, 2004, an earthquake struck 150 km off the coast of Aceh. It was the most powerful the world has seen in a generation. Forty-five minutes later the tsunami wave hit Aceh and within minutes it swept clean an 800 km coastal strip of Aceh – equivalent to the coastline from San Francisco to San Diego. Some 130,000 people were killed and 37,000 remain missing.
a year after the tsunami, there are a lot of international NGOs in Aceh to assist the recovery and reconstruction process, and the recontruction is still going on.
Now Aceh will have a new history, and new chapter for the future....
This huge ship belong to State Utility Electricity, it's supply the electricity to Batam island, and now landed in the middle of the Banda Aceh city cos of Tsunami, the ship crashes several houses, and there are several bodies trapped under the ship, till now still not move yet. Can you imagine how big the tsunami hit Banda Aceh?
