89. Terrible
But it is sort of beyond comprehension, like an asteroid hitting the Earth (which has happened and caused massive extinctions). Natural disasters like this always remind me that we are not really in conrol here. There is absolutely no way it could have been prevented. I am not even sure if warnings would have helped much.
