Thousands Dead -- Has Anyone Noticed?

It has been reported that more than 3,000 people may have been killed by a cyclone that Thursday struck Bangladesh's southwest coast.

Hundreds of thousands may be displaced.

Is it just me or is no one talking about this? It's not even currently a lead story on many major news Websites.
