Not only is a natural disaster killing 10,000 humans a terrible event, but we have so little information coming out of Burma that the number could easily be higher, and the brutality of the military junta doesn't yield much hope that they'd be looking out for the well-being of their people, or that they wouldn't take advantage of the chaos to suppress dissent even further. What a terrible situation.

UPDATE: If the money for aid is coming out of the World Food Program, as is being reported, that's really terrible because the WFP is completely underfunded in trying to deal with the global food crisis.
