South Asia Disaster

The International Red Cross predicts that the death toll following Sunday's massive earthquake and the deadly tsunamis it created could eventually reach 100,000.

President Bush announced today that the United States, India, Australia and Japan have formed an international coalition to coordinate worldwide relief and reconstruction efforts for the Asian region ravaged by a deadly earthquake and tsunamis.

"We will stand with them as they start to rebuild their communities," Bush said from his Texas ranch in his first comments on the disaster Sunday that so far has killed more than 76,000.

We'll have the latest on relief efforts, a remarkable story of survival and a live report from the region...
