I suggest not to check CNN, because they even got the map (of the epicentre) wrong! And CNN is also not very updated on the death toll.
Although the quake is nearest to Indonesia, the number of casualties here isn't as 'big' as in e.g. Sri Lanka because north Sumatra area is not that densely populated. Also, ironically, because the distance between the epicentre and the coast is not that huge, so the tsunami has yet to be that strong upon hitting the land. This is unlike the case with Sri Lanka where the tsunami got intensified due to the fact that it travelled across hundreds of kms in the Indian Ocean.
I don't know of an easy way to set up XT relief fund - I just know that in Singapore the government's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has opened donation scheme. So if anybody is interested, I guess you can use the Donate function of XT (through Paypal) and write a message when you send the donation, that you are sending that donation for the Earthquake (and not for XT). I'll donate that exact amount from my own bank account here.
That's the easiest way I can think of - if anyone can think of a better option, please share it here.

I simply am NOT there
