Not worth thinking about how bad it is going to be for many many years now. And quite possible more storms like that to come in the future?????
I am surprised that this topic has been so quiet, it seems that most on here are just not interested in a major disaster.

I am not in favour of foreign aid as most goes to country's governments and is used for arms or suppression of it's people, but this is genuine humanitarian need. They do not have the resources to overcome this without outside help.

I will judge countries on their response. UK government has committed most so far.
The bloke named kent I am talking to dave has said that the Australians have sent over doctors, as we know the UK are sending aid and navy vessel and big donations to help in anyway possible. He said that also the USA are there helping to. He did say to me to thank the people of the UK for there kind generosity and care towards his people. and for god to bless us all he said we are very humble people.

I think aid is getting through now.
