n the morning of December 26, 2004, an undersea earthquake in the Indian Ocean created a wave of such size and force that, by the time it struck land, it would prove to be one of the most cataclysmic natural disasters in a century. The tsunami devoured coastlines, obliterated cities, ended hundreds of thousands of lives and devastated millions more before rolling back to the sea.

MTV News dispatched correspondents from around the world in an attempt to not only survey the damage, but to see firsthand the human dramas unfolding.

SuChin Pak flew 25 hours to the hardest-hit areas of Thailand, where she saw how young forensic experts are helping families find closure, if that's possible. Tim Kash of MTV News U.K. traveled back to his native Sri Lanka and met the generation of orphans left in the wave's wake. Gideon Yago flew with the U.S. Navy into Banda Aceh, Indonesia, where nearly 100,000 people died in one minute. And Cyrus Broacha of MTV India left his home in the bustling urban center of Mumbai for the tsunami-ravaged fishing villages on the southern coast of his homeland.

In our television special "After the Tsunami" we try to answer that question and a lot more. Here on our Web site we present to you the thoughts of our correspondents as they reflect on their four assignments, as well as a photo essay of what they saw and who they met. We also invite those interested to check out our article "Tsunami Relief: What You Can Do To Help," and you should also check out our auction, where you can bid on cool stuff from celebrities and MTV, with all proceeds going to the relief effort.
