The 26 December 2004 earthquake and tsunami devastated communities by killing and injuring hundreds of thousands, displacing the survivors and in many cases destroying their livelihoods. In Thailand, the tsunami caused extensive damage to life and property in six southern coastal provinces of Thailand, viz. Krabi, Phang-nga, Phuket, Ranong, Trang, Satun. The severely affected areas in these provinces include about 300 villages in 78 sub-districts (tambon) of 24 districts (amphur). In all it is estimated that 20,537 households with a total population of 91,638 were directly affected through loss of, or injury to, a family member.
