8th Class Chapter No 2 - The Tsunami in English for CBSE NCERT

In tsunami Ignesious , the manager of a cooperative society, lost two of his children, wife and father-in-law as he could not get alarmed by the tremor. Sanjeev was a policeman. He jumped into the water to rescue his cook's wife, but they were both swept away. Both Meghna's and Almas' families were washed away. Both of them kept floating in the sea for days. Meghna floated in the sea for two days holding on to a wooden door. She was brought to the shore by a wave. Similarly, Almas climbed on to a log of wood and fainted. She woke up in a hospital. Both the girls were traumatized after the incident. While Meghna was seen walking on the seashore in daze, Almas does not talk about the incident to anyone. Both of them were not noticed by relief helicopters. Tilly Smith (a British school girl ) was able to save many lives when the tsunami struck Phuket beach in Thailand as she had seen the sea behaving in the same way in a video in her class of a tsunami that had hit the Hawaiian islands in 1946. She had won a number of awards. The tourist thanked Tilly and her geography lesson that had warned her. Before tsunami in India and SriLanka, wild and domestic animals fled to safety, elephants ran for higher grounds; dogs refuse to go outdoors; flamingoes abandoned their low-lying breeding areas as seemed to know what was about to happen. It is believed that animals either posses a sixth sense or have more acute hearing that helps them to hear or feel earth's vibration. Near about 150,000 people killed in tsunami in a dozen countries but not many animals reported dead.
