A short-term project to identify and record eyewitness statements from those affected by the event. More than 70 eyewitnesses, who experienced the event in Sri Lanka and Thailand were contacted and most interviewed by telephone or face to face. A database of responses was compiled.

A further 400 interviews were carried out in Indonesia by collaborators at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand using the same questionnaire, and these are currently being processed.
