The death toll in the countries around the Indian Ocean hit by the flood wave continues to rise.
It is possible that we will never know just how many people lost their lives in the region stretching from Sri Lanka in the west to Indonesia in the east.
If you or any of your relatives experienced the flood and you would like to share your thoughts with us in a special edition of Mailbag with Margot Forbes, please send us an e-mail at Newslink@dw-world.de or firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at the Deutsche Welle, English Service, Postcode 53110 Bonn, Germany.
