…The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies put the death toll above 120,000. The huge increase in the tally from Wednesday to Thursday was driven by relief workers' ability to reach isolated villages in Indonesia, and the total seemed certain to keep rising as the search for survivors continued.  
The current toll comprises nearly 80,000 from Indonesia, the nation closest to the epicenter of the 9.0 magnitude earthquake in the floor of the Indian Ocean; 27,000 from Sri Lanka, the island nation off the tip of India; 11,000 from India; about 5,000 from Thailand; and fewer than 100 from each of several other nations in the Indian Ocean region, including those as far away as eastern Africa….  
...The United Nations estimated that, in addition to the dead, nearly 500,000 people were injured and 1 million people had been displaced from their homes.  
-The World Health Organization said 3 million to 5 million people in the region didn't have the basic requirements of life: clean water, adequate shelter, food, medical care. On the coast of Aceh province in Indonesia, for example, only one hospital was operational. The WHO's director-general called the quake and tsunami "the most serious natural disaster to affect the region for several decades," and reiterated the organization's plea to get the necessary relief in place to prevent as many deaths from disease as from the tidal wave.  
 
 
The numbers on this tragedy continue to rise.  There are no words to accurately describe this tragedy.  It is surreal.
 
This year my family has decided to forgo our New Year’s Celebration and instead donate the money to the Red Cross to aid in the relief efforts.  Just one way to start the New Year off right…by lending a helping hand (or donation).   May their souls rest peacefully.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to the family

Happy New Year Svenn and Bente......pretty soon for you Norsk types too. Careful with all that fancy liquor. You can't afford to spill it. For me, I pay more for sox than I do for wine.    
 
The Red Cross is a good choice too Svenn. You know that one way or another your contribution goes where it's needed.
