Beyond Me 

It's a big ocean we share. Wikipedia's 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake entry provides information about each country affected directly and indirectly by the earthquake near Sumatra and the resulting tsunamis.

'WA feels tsunami aftermath' (The Age, 28 December, 2004) and 'WA baby swept away in tsunami' (The West Australian 28 December, 2004) tell just a little of how the earthquake has affected West Australians so far.

The article by Karen Middleton in The West concludes with a quote from the head of Italy's National Geophysics Institute Enzo Boschi, who said the earth's rotation was affected by the quake: "All the planet is vibrating."
