Tidal Waves Hit Pacific Atolls -- Villages Running Out of Food!

Why isn't the mainstream media reporting on this story, but spending hours talking about Casey and Caylee Anthony?
Reports reaching the Solomon Star say the Atolls of Ontong Java have been badly hit and people there are now running out of food. Reports from the two affected villages say since Monday last week they have been experiencing rough seas that eventually turned into a tidal wave.

Chief Peter Kalali from the House of Chiefs of Luaniua and Pelau in a letter dated 11th December 2008 to the Ministry of Home Affairs and the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) said the situation had affected the livelihood of the people.

I spotted it too - same time as Pozan conference ends in (relative ) failure (http://www.economist.com/world/international/displaystory.cfm?story_id=12831791).

A pessimistic view would be that this is the beginning.
