Tsunami: What Happened
Jamais Cascio, 2 Jan 05

When something as wide-ranging and devastating as the South Asia tsunami happens, it's easy to get lost in the abundance of stories, rumors and details. WikiPedia has done a masterful job of bringing together and keeping current the facts of the event, and SEA-EAT, of course, continues to collect massive amounts of information on the recovery and relief process. But one of the best overviews I've found so far is at the New York Times website -- it's not as granular as Wikipedia nor as encyclopedic as SEA-EAT, but it's richly illustrated with dozens of powerful photographs, helpful maps, and occasional informative animations (requires Flash). If you're looking for a clear capsule depiction of what happened, the NYT page is a good place to start.

great web page i'm sorry to find out about all that has happened i sympathise the people who have lost family and friends and hope such a thing will never happen again what i want to know is how has this happened and what we can do to stop this.i think we should find a way to prevent this from ever happening again and all the children who have lost thier family and have nobody to go to should be taken some where and be taken care of because most people are dieing because they have nothing to support them

Hope you can help those people in need and take them to safety. i am doing all i can to find a way to help these people i am a scientist and am trying to find a way to stop this onc and for all without hurting a soul. You keep working and write down all u know on the web page to keep me informed some of the work could give me a bost so keep writing.

Good bless u and all that have left this world rest in peace.

I've been hearing alot of different stories about what happened in Tsunami, but what bothers me the most is that we've lost so many people, and I grieve for the families and friends of the lost people. I'm a single parent w/2 children and I don't really have much but if there is anything I could do to help I will be glad to help. I will continue to pray for the survivors, and may God be with the people we've lost.
