Dear Sir, > Kenya/Africa

Hope you are well by the Grace of Almighty and wishing your inmates and others a Prosperous Happy New Year.

Yes, I have received your e-mail pertinent to the amazing fact about a location in Kenya, Africa and so it is being being circulated to Sefians as well.

I am giving below a Reuters news agency report from Banda Aceh, Indonesia

What was the height of tsunami along the eastern coast line of Africa particularly in the Indian Ocean frontier of Kenya and Somalia ?

The South East Asian Earthquake generated tsunami crossed into vastness of the Pacific and struck marathon coast line of the Pacific Ocean from the southern tip of Chile, South America upto northern tip of Alaska, North America ; so much powered it was.

With regards.

Top News - Reuters  
BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (Reuters) - The world began what may prove to be the biggest relief effort in history.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan (news - web sites) said the disaster that has displaced 5 million people was "an unprecedented global catastrophe and it requires an unprecedented global response." He said a half-billion dollars had been pledged so far.

Indonesia said on Friday it would host an international tsunami summit on Jan. 6 to hammer out aid and reconstruction needs

A Red Cross Web site in Geneva to aid anxious relatives locate survivors partially crashed after being overwhelmed by 650,000 hits in the first 24 hours.

Dozens of aftershocks have unnerved the traumatised survivors after the 9.0 magnitude earthquake, the strongest in 40 years, sent an unprecedented tsunami rolling from Indonesia to Africa.

The Indian government issued an alert following one aftershock on Thursday that sent residents fleeing in panic and halted aid distribution in towns in Tamil Nadu state.

"I don't know how often this (tsunami) will happen but it has suddenly made our lives uncertain," said Apparachi Ashokan, a fisherman at Devanampatti village near Cuddalore town, 100 miles south of Madras.

Residents in worst-hit Banda Aceh city on the Indonesian island of Sumatra bolted from their homes for a second straight night after aftershocks late Thursday night.

PRIVATE DONATIONS SOARING

President Bush (news - web sites), criticized for a slow reaction to the disaster, said he would send a delegation led by Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) to the region on Sunday to assess the need for U.S. assistance. Bush has pledged $35 million so far.

The USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier and a flotilla of ships is steaming to Thailand to set up a base to coordinate aid for the region.

People across the world opened their hearts and wallets to give millions of dollars to victims, jamming phone lines and Web sites and in some cases outpacing their own governments in their generosity.

The Paris Club group of creditors is to examine a debt moratorium for disaster-struck countries, a source close to the Club said.
Indonesia's Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda said Jakarta has invited heads of state from the 10-member Association of South East Asian Nations, China, Japan, South Korea (news - web sites), India, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand and the United States to the aid summit along with the U.N., World Bank (news - web sites) and other agencies.
Analysts estimated damages from the disaster at about $14 billion, but that does not include potential losses of business and productivity. Some are cutting economic growth estimates for the hardest-hit countries.
Getting aid to the survivors is the big problem, with many roads washed out, petrol stations not operating and poor coordination among the military, aid groups and governments.
Many villages and resorts from Thailand to Indonesia are now mud-covered rubble, blanketed with the stench of corpses.
Aircraft dropped supplies to nearly obliterated towns in Sumatra, an island the size of Florida.
But food and medical supplies were stacking up at the airport on Friday in Banda Aceh, which Indonesia is calling ground zero for the disaster, but few vehicles could be seen delivering aid to the devastated city.  
Handwritten signs tacked up on utility poles and fences across the city pleaded: "Please help. Give us aid."
The hundreds of thousands of homeless were being housed in refugee camps around the Indian Ocean.
Many of them, like Jackson, a 75-year-old farmer on India's remote Nicobar island, are now refugees.
"We are still terrified of the water and the thought of returning to the place where we lost everything," he said at a refugee camp in Port Blair, the main town in the island chain.
"But that island is still the only home I know and I would rather go back soon and die peacefully there than live as a refugee."
