“Indian Ocean tsunami: Britons caught up in disaster help Sri Lanka rebuild” by Mark Tran

“For years, Rob and Paul Forkan were reluctant to set foot in Sri Lanka where their parents, Kevin and Sandra, died in the Indian Ocean tsunami 10 years ago – one of the world’s worst natural disasters on record.

The brothers, then 17 and 15 respectively, were spending Christmas with their family in Weligama, a small fishing town on the south coast of Sri Lanka. On that Sunday morning, the family woke up to screams and huge waves crashing through their hotel rooms. The parents struggled against the rush of water to put the two youngest children, Mattie and Rosie, up on the roof.”
