Transcript Story by Jenna McManus Reports of the number of victims in the south Asian tsunami of December 2004 inspired grief, and an unprecedented world-wide relief effort. he tsunami of December 26, 2004 devastated the coasts of Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand, killing people as far away as east Africa. More than 500,000 people were injured, more than 1 million were displaced and more than 2 million were in need of food. Tens of thousands of people were missing and the final death toll may never be known because of all the people who were swept out to sea or buried under mud and rubble. The current death toll stands at 212,000 and will continue to grow. The bodies being recovered were so badly decomposed and bloated it was hard to identify them. Secretary of State Colin Powell acknowledged that it was necessary to get dental records and DNA samples from relatives of those still unaccounted for. "Perhaps we will never know the exact scale of the human casualties" Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said. World government agencies pledged some $4 billion to help aid the largest humanitarian operation in the history of the United Nations. The U.N. proposed a system in the Indian Ocean much like the one already in place in the Pacific. It would include offshore detection buoys and a communications center altogether costing about $30 million and could go into operation by mid-2006. Tsunamis are less common in the Indian Ocean, far away from the volcanic "Ring of Fire" outlining the coasts of Japan and the shores of Alaska and South America, but upon this most recent disaster the cost of ignoring the threat of tsunamis has become a risk that may prove too great to take.
