The Disaster

The total energy released by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake exceeds the total amount of energy consumed in the United States in one month, or the energy released by the wind of a hurricane like Hurricane Isabel over a period of 70 days.

from Wikipedia: 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake

Wikipedia also has links to sites accepting donations for earthquake/tsunami victims or you can visit Amazon where they have created a space for accepting Red Cross donations.
