Glad your neice is safe, and the family will be home soon.

the figures are absurd! can't believe it!
all the dead will be in my prayers today.

I also heard a lot of tourists coming from various parts of the world were there. At least 11 italian guys died there.

i just hope the international community can get up and help the people hit by this tragedy.

When I woke up this morning and saw that the number had doubled to 20,000+ my heart just sank. Care International is sending relief kits to the area, I know I will try to contribute what I can and I hope y'all will too.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts. We're unaffected by the waves themselves but apparently the tremor effects of the earthquake were felt in parts of the island shortly after the quake.

Quite happy to see AcroSteve around, glad you and your family are OK. Thoughts and prayers to all with loved ones in the affected areas.

Thanks so very much for posting all of that, nbc. These are all great organizations, and I know a lot of FYMers want to help out.
