It is difficult to gauge how many people have been killed in Myanmar because foreign journalists are not permitted to enter and the information published on state-run newspapers is tightly controlled.

However, the official death toll stands at 56 whereas independent sources report of some 90 deaths. At least 30,000 citizens of Myanmar are in dire need of shelter, food and water and around 788 buildings were purportedly damaged or destroyed. An estimated 7,000 people are still missing.
