THE ENVIRONMENT: Catastrophes hit hard
Tourists pack a pier as they wait to be evacuated from the Phi Phi Islands in Krabi province, southern Thailand, December 27, 2004 after a tsunami swept through this famous tourist resort on Sunday. The death toll in a tidal wave triggered by an earthquake that slammed into coasts from India to Indonesia topped 21,000 on Monday as rescuers scoured the sea for missing tourists and soldiers raced to recover bodies amid growing fears of disease.
