Effect of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake on the Maldives

Malé, the capital island of the Maldives was severely hit by the tsunami.

In the Maldives, 88 people were killed and 24 reported missing and presumed dead after it was hit by a tsunami caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake on 26 December 2004.[1] Two-thirds of the capital city Malé was flooded during the first hours of the day. Outlying low-level atolls were badly affected and some low lying islands, including some of the major resorts, were completely submerged at the peak of the tsunami.

The government declared a state of national disaster[2] and a special task force was set up to provide aid and supplies. Rescue efforts were hampered by loss of communication capability with the over one thousand islands that compose the nation, as well as by the lack of disaster planning.
