Worth Several Thousand Words

I’ve been trying to think of something to say in a post about the earthquake, and words have essentially failed me. What can be said about a natural disaster that has claimed at least 10,000 lives, particularly when it has happened in a country that feels to me as much like home–maybe more so–than my own?

I am happy to say that I’ve made contact with the few people there that I know personally, and they are all safe and well.

Of all of the images and videos I’ve watched, I believe that this set of satellite photos most vividly illustrates the nature and intensity of the destruction caused by the tsunami. It overlays images of the same areas, before and after the earthquake, with a movable divider that lets you compare them.

UPDATE: Link fixed. The permalink presented by the page was bad.
