"Devastation" in Indonesia, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Thailand, India, Maldives, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), and Bangladesh (East Pakistan), Costs MONEY:
"Tsunami States Hasten to Provide Aid, Beat Disease"
"The cost of the devastation will be in the billions of dollars," said Jan Egeland, head of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
"Actually foreign assistance for many countries now is 0.1 or 0.2 percent of gross national income, that is stingy."
"UN Says Cost of Tsunami Disaster Without Precedent"
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell Monday said the United States would give an initial 15 million dollars in relief assistance.
"Waves leave millions homeless"
"Tsunami death toll could double"
