Tsunami#5:good news « Previous | |Next »
January 2, 2005

Indonesian news reports say that cholera-like symptoms have already begun to show up among homeless people gathered in camps near the devastated provincial capital of Banda Aceh in north western Sumatra.

Along the west coast of hard-hit Aceh province many survivors, cut off from the outside world, are threatened by starvation and sickness.

By all accounts Meulobah is gone. An ariel image of Meulobah.

The good news is that US. Navy helicopters from the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier began arriving in Banda Aceh on Saturday. They are also beginning to run much needed missions along the west coast of the Aceh province.

It may be to late to deal with some of the infected wounds.
