Yesterday was the first anniversary of the tsunami that devastated countries throughout South Asia. Through the end of next month, the Notebaert Nature Museum is running an exhibition that examines the science behind tsunami formation and profiles families in various affected regions. The AP has more on that, while the Trib runs a series that takes stock a year later.
