Whole Villages Destroyed in Indonesia's Aceh Region

Entire towns and villages have disappeared from the coast of the Indonesian province of Aceh at the tip of Sumatra, one of the hardest-hit areas of last week's earthquake and tsunami. Estimates of the number of dead continue to rise, and countless thousands of survivors are in desperate need of food, medicine and potable water. NPR's Michael Sullivan reports.
