Check out Command Post for the latest on the quake / tsunami in the Indian Ocean.
I’ll assume you’ve seen the news, but if you haven’t a major quake off Indonesia triggered a tidal wave which devastated parts of Thailand, Sri Lanka, and other beach-oriented countries in the region. Death estimates are about 6,00 as of this morning and will doubtless go higher.
It’s numbing news, and a reminder to me that we live here at the sufferance of Nature – also with John Holschen in my mind – I need to refresh the contests of the first-aid kits and get-home kits. We live near the coast in earthquake country, too.
You may want to think about whatever form preparedness is appropriate to your location as well.
