Sidr

As has been reported in various places, the death toll from Sidr has slowly and steadily climbed, topping 3,000 according to a fairly recent report from the BBC.

The Bangladesh Red Crescent is estimating that the death toll may reach 10,000.

A half million homes have been destroyed, and a couple/few million people displaced.

Aid is getting to many areas though there are concerns of lack of coordination among agencies and between the aid agencies and the government, according to some reports. The southwest has many regions where supplies and help have not yet arrived.

The biggest problem right now seems to be lack of food, and that is also a long term problem with much of the rice crop destroyed in many places.

    Hurricanes are part of the natural process. Maybe we don’t want to stop them, but simply live with them.
