Research shows that a mega-tsunami hits land, somewhere in the world, every 50 years. Scientists say the tidal wave that devastated South Asia over a week ago was so bad because the area is underdeveloped.

On Friday, a Texas A&M researcher along with five engineers will travel to Sri Lanka to educate survivors on how to avoid such disaster in the future. The research team will survey the damage and the highest water levels on shore.

The researcher heading the voyage will talk to News Three in an interview on Wednesday.
