TSUNAMI UPDATE - Madagascar and Mauritius

This BBC Report talks about the "forgotten" victims of this disaster, ostensibly in Somalia, but also on the islands on the western shore of the Indian Ocean.
In Madagascar, more than 1,000 people were made homeless while a village in northern Mauritius was submerged for almost three hours following the surges.
This Tsunami Timeline from the Turkish Press contains this paragraph:
Towards 0900 GMT [Dec 26], strong waves reach Mauritius and the island of Rodrigues causing damage but no casualties.
