21. Thanks, DUers!
I am from Indonesia, on the Java island. It's amazing how the tidal waves travelled with such great force to Sri Lanka and India and yet spared the densedly populated Java which is closer to the epicentrum than those two countries. The total death toll so far has been reported as high as 24,000 and it's counting... Indonesia has lost at least 5,000 of its citizens with thousands still missing. The authorities say they will not be surprised if the final casualties will be around 25,000 people! Thailand was in the peak of tourist season when the waves wiped cleaned the tourist shores. It has the most number of foreign casualties. The last that I heard on the regional news is that at least 6 (six) Americans in the region were among the deads. Sri Lanka has almost 13,000 casualties and India has about 5,000 so far. :(
