The Tsunami in South Asia

As most folks have already heard, a tsunami caused by an 8.9-richter earthquake has killed at least 20,000 people, many in Sri Lanka, but throughout the whole region and as far away as Somalia. Dina Mehta in Bombay is blogging about the tragedy on her blog, and on a group blog designed to share information and point people around the world to organizations like MSF helping with relief efforts.

Rohit Gupta, also writing from Bombay, has a moving story about how local fisherman saved many of the tourists who were visiting the Vivekananda Rock Memorial, off the southernmost tip on India.
