20,000 or more now. Crazy just how many people that is in such a short time. I wonder how that would be covered or dealt with if something like that happened in the US.

These sort of disasters would not fare well in the US. Look at what happened during Katrina and that was a fraction of an event compared to this. The government and infrastructure is simply not in place for something like this.
