Tsunami's Toll

The sheer numbers of people killed by this tsunami is staggering:
"Stricken countries on the Indian Ocean worked swiftly on Wednesday to bury thousands of bodies as experts warned disease could kill as many people as the 63,000 already dead from the violent crush of Sunday's tsunami."
I still recall, however, the Chinese earthquake of July 1976, which, as I recall, killed approximately 800,000!
