A satellite image taken Dec. 29, 2004, shows an overview of Aceh province in the western Indonesian island of Sumatra. The area absorbed the double shock of the world's worst earthquake in 40 years coupled with the resulting catastrophic tsunami

BEFORE: This detailed view of the northern tip of the island was taken on Jan 10, 2003

AFTER: A photo taken of the same area on Jan. 29, 2004, shows the extreme destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami. On Thursday, Indonesian officials issued a new death toll of nearly 80,000 for that country alone.

 

BEFORE: This detailed view of northern Banda Aceh was taken on Jan. 10, 2003

AFTER: News services on Thursday reported that pilots in Sumatra had discovered about 28,000
more dead in Banda Aceh while dropping food to remote villages still unreachable by rescue workers.

 

BEFORE: This detailed view of the island was taken by the IKONOS satellite on Jan. 10, 2003

AFTER: Some officials said there was dismal coordination among the Indonesian military, civilians and foreign governments. "We haven't gotten any help at all, nothing, said a resident who was camped out five miles from the airport in Banda Aceh.

 
BEFORE: This detailed view of the west of the island was taken on Jan. 10, 2003

AFTER: As of Thursday, several governments had pledged $500 million in emergency aid for stricken areas.

 
BEFORE: This detailed view of the west of the island was taken on Jan. 10, 2003

AFTER: On Wednesday, the Indonesian military finally reached the Sumatra town of Meulaboh, closest to the epicenter on the massive earthquake. A bulldozer dug a mass grave the size of a
swimming pool in which to pile corpses covered only by plastic sheets.

Prayers for these people. Note the size of the area in the first picture that shows where these smaller detailed photos were taken. And this is still just one small part of the whole thing.

Understatement of the year.

I am just stunned at how much some of the towns were obliterated by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami waves from these pictures.

Yes it is. As are the satellite pics I have from from the USGS of the World Trade Center still smoking. I'd post them but I do not know how, and they are only on my home PC.
