Late last night I heard maybe in the excess of 250, 000 missing or dead as a lot of the area's that are effected they can't access at the present moment.

This may be closer to the figure as now there is people getting sick and hungery is now setting in, the country is under military rule and needs to open it's borders to get the aid in as quick as possiable.
