YANGON, Myanmar (CNN) -- The death toll from the Myanmar cyclone is more than 10,000 people, Myanmar's Foreign Ministry office said Monday.

Survivors were facing their third night without electricity in the aftermath of the historic cyclone that also clogged roads with thousands of downed trees.

John, thank you for posting that link. Early this morning CNN was reporting 3000 to 4000 deaths. By 2 pm they'd learned there was over 10,000. Sad.

Very sad. I'm surprised this isn't getting more press coverage.
