Cyclone Giri- Burma

Posted by KRStamm on 23/10/2010 at 04:09

I was wondering if anyone has any news about the disaster that is taking place in Burma. Cyclone Giri has been classified as a "super cyclone" and hit land this morning. 10/22/10. All the news I have found has said that it could be a huge "humanitarian disaster" with flooding, mudslides and landslides. Also many shrimp farms destroyed as well as rice crops. If anyone has any news on what is happening please let me know so I can appropriately change my Honeymoon plans. I figure Cambodia is a good alternative. We are to leave November 14th to BKK from SFO and to Burma on Nov 17th. returning the 15th of December.
