What ever happened to Cyclone Nargis?
Well this is what happened.
Again, we were lucky.

Placed opposite is a photo from Myanmar TV of the destruction in Yangoon.
The question is how long will our luck last?
An update on 06May2008: the official death toll is now 10,000 dead and not 400 as earlier reported. This figure is expected to rise sharply!
An update on 08May2008: the official death toll is now more than 100,000 dead.
