The Looming Water Crisis in Burma

The Wall Street Journal reports:
"More food reached Myanmar's hungry cyclone victims as roads were cleared of fallen trees, but a British aid group warned that up to 1.5 million people face death if they do not get clean water and sanitation soon."
On a related note, the first cases of cholera have also been reported in Burma. (Link to AGI, an Italian news agency)
