Thank you, NickTrop.

You have done a wonderful service to put all this key information on relief for the tsunami tragedy survivors in one place.

As my late Sicilian, 4' 10" grandmother used to say...

Why is it all Sundays and 26th of the month? The last earthquake in India in which more than 20K perished, also happened on Sunday the 26th, as in case of this latest calamity.

The questions are many. What if the authorities had informed the people at coastal areas about the danger, when they had about 2 to 3 hrs before it actually hit the sri lankan and indian coasts?

A moment's silence for the departed souls.

I just posted it because I found it difficult to find this nfo. Maybe I wasn't using the correct search terms? This is from a Washington Post article. Anyway, here it is. (40,000 confirmed casualities this morning... what an absolute calamity.) A lot of lurkers, posters etc. even if one person donates a small amount to these poor, poor people...You know?

I was in my office in Turkey from May until late October and I experienced my first earthquakes and the biggest was 5.1 and that was scary so I wouldn't like to imagine what the 9.1 was like.

I had friends of friends out in Thailand and thankfully they are now safe.

Thanks for sharing this valuable info Nick....donations are needed not only to help to evacuate survivors but above all to fight against epidemic menaces...that I hope wont succes.

Unfortunately, human casualties are still growing.....god bless all victims of the disaster.

... I almost hate turning on the news, or going to the news sites. The death toll seems to rise by 10,000 people every time I do. Talk about "before the grace of God, go I". So sad.

Nick you are so right!!!!very true we all take a lot for granted most of the time....only thing is that these types of tragedy's are so unpredictable..i live in Florida and was thinking if that had of happened off my cost it would have devastated Florida....we can only pray for the victims...i will look to see if we have a relief program here.....

@ 4:00 am yahoo news ( death toll 75,000 ) could be as high as 100,000

sad......

Yes, we can pray for the victims.
Photography is our hobby so may be each one of us can post some photos as a tribute for them. So sad.
God bless our Earth.
