AID TO SUMATRA EARTHQUAKE-TSUNAMI VICTIMS & RECONSTRUCTION:

  • TOTAL WORLD AID PLEDGED ( Jan 1/05): US$4.0 BILLION & growing.

  • Indonesia warned aid workers that separatist rebels have taken shelter in camps for survivors  and a burst of violence between Christians and Hindus hit Sri Lanka, signaling a potential resurgence of long-simmering rebellions in both tsunami-hit countries that could hamper help for victims of the two-week-old disaster.

RESULT OF SUMATRA EARTHQUAKE-TSUNAMI DISASTER ON DECEMBER 26, 2004:

  • Sumatra has accounted for about two-thirds of the 155,000 people known to have died in the December 26 earthquake and tsunami that ravaged 11 countries in Asia and Africa. In Banda Aceh alone, 40,000 people were killed and many more were left homeless and traumatized after giant waves tore through the city.

  • Banda Aceh, January 10, 2005|10:07 Indian Standard Time: A strong earthquake shook buildings and sent people scrambling from their homes early on Monday in Banda Aceh, an Indonesian city devastated by the massive quake and tsunami two weeks ago. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from the temblor, which the US Geological Survey's website said struck off the northern coast of Sumatra Island at 5:13 am. The magnitude 6.2 quake was centered at a depth of about 14 kilometres (8.9 miles) under the seabed in the Indian Ocean, about 60 kilometres (40 miles) southwest of Banda Aceh, the USGS said.
