Red Cross sets up Web site for tsunami victim contact

The Swiss-based International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said its site www.familylinks.icrc.org was already getting an active response and registrations were building up fast as its existence became known.

Most registrations so far show people being sought from the U.S. west coast state of California and Canada's Yukon Territory through Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland and Scandinavia, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East to Japan. (***)

Does anyone know how tall the largest wave of the tsunami was? Does anyone know how far inland the wave reached?

In Venezuela there was a tragedy like this in 1999, casualties numbers are pretty much alike.

I pray for all those people who die that day.

The site is down - too much traffic.

Not sure why someone would ask for Tsunami stats here but in any case the highest wave recorded was in 1958. A landslide caused a tsunami in Lituya Bay, Alaska that was 525 meters (1722 ft). That's half a Km high. Try outrun that.

Interesting, I read the waves of the Asian Tsunamis were like 15 mt hight and there are more that 80.000 deadly victims.

This waves in Canada of half a Km. took like a hundred people killed.

I guess there was much less people there.

Anyways, I think what "anonymous" asked was how big were waves in Asia 2004.

I feel sorry for these people and my prayers for them all. We (the U.States of America) has given them sufficient money plus all the countries,I believe. This may seem harse, but where was India, Thailand etc. when our state Florida was destroyed by Hurricanes? You know we can not stop MOTHER NATURE, and we (the people) can only give so much. I wished the U.S.Gove. would send some of that money to each of us citizens so we don't have to be on food stamps etc. Give us back some of OUR money that we HAVE to give our Gov. I'm sorry for the people of Tsunami, and I will pray for them.

regards,
