Yahoo! News - Tsunami Death Toll Soars Past 55,000

Yahoo! News - Tsunami Death Toll Soars Past 55,000: "Desperate refugees foraged for coconuts or looted food on battered
Sumatra island Tuesday, as the number killed in a mammoth earthquake
and tsunami soared above 55,000 and tens of thousands still were
missing. Grieving survivors buried their dead by hand, trying to ward
off an epidemic that the U.N. health agency warned could double the
toll yet again."

Can you picture 55,000 people? I can't. It's amazing the damage one tsunami can do.
