When I saw 'Burma' and 'cyclone' in the papers a couple of days ago, I was worried, but then saw it was 'only' 350 people dead (and not the thousands I had feared, on the basis of the Christmas tsunami).

Then I opened yesterday's papers and the numbers read 10,000.

I open the BBC today and it's 20,000.

How do you go from 350 to 20,000?! That's a margin of error beyond my comprehansion.
