Asian Tsunami / Earthquake

Tsunami/Earthquake disaster mobilizes relief effort by international community. Death Toll estimated at 120,000 but final number may be much higher due to onset of disease in unsanitary conditions and unaccounted persons swept away by ocean. Poor access to clean water and basic medical supplies are most pressing issues in the days following disaster.
