The Tsunami in Southeast Asia during Christmas 2004 resulted in the largest number of lost lives in Finland since the Second World War. In Sweden, the Tsunami disaster caused about as many deaths as the sinking of the ferry Estonia in the Baltic Sea in 1994. In both countries, the tsunami disaster can be described as one of the worst catastrophes experienced during the post-war period.This book examines how this dramatic and unexpected event affected public communication patterns and practices in countries like Finland and Sweden.
