On Dec. 26, 2004, a massive undersea earthquake struck off the coast of Indonesia, sparking a massive tsunami that killed 230,000 people in 14 countries and inundating coastal towns with waves up to 100 feet high. The Indian Ocean tsunami is believed to be the deadliest natural disaster in recent history.

A decade later, photographers have returned to Indonesia, Thailand and other countries to rephotograph some of the iconic scenes from the aftermath of the disaster, capturing both the devastation wrought by the tsunami and the rebuilding efforts since.
