Danushkodi, India 1964
A freak storm hit southern India on 23 December 1964 raising a destructive tidal wave. Pictured here is what remained of an Indian narrow gauge train which was swept away as it crossed from Raneswaren Island to the mainland. All 128 passengers and crew were killed in the upturned and totally destroyed carriages.
