  1. I spoke with people in Trinidad yesterday after hearing on The BBC World News at 5.00 PM Central US Time, that the devastation was accompanied by a tsunami warning for the region. No one I spoke with in TnT had heard that news. I just spoke with someone else three minutes ago, he had not heard it either.

    Are we at the far end of communication? suppose a tsunami had materialized, and was rushing to TnT’s shoreline, how would the people have known?

    It is possible to send relief to Haiti by a credit card. Yahoo news has links to all the aid agencies wroking there. Please people, do not let me hear that the road in Caripichinma and Poole need fixing first. The American economy is bad, yet help is mobilizing here, including a hospital ship. When people are in worst situations than you, give help in thanksgiving for your own safety. And keep them in your prayers.

  2. Disaster
