Reports (as of 02 October) estimate that the death toll has now passed 1300. The United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs says there are nearly 200,000 people in urgent need of assistance, about a quarter of them children. Survivors are increasing desperate for fuel, food & water.
