First impact on Hulhumale'

This picture taken in Hulhumale' on December 26 shows the tsunami sweeping into the artificially created island in the Maldives. Compared to other islands, this reclaimed island was affected less by the tsunami. The island is raised a few feet above sea level as a protection against sea level rise, but it was not enough to stop the tsunami. Photo: UID, Hulhumale'. Posted by Hello
