Re: Island Sands, are you ok?

As far as I know she is on Christmas vacation and away from the island. But I've no idea where!

Don't forget Alison and Colin who may have been in Sri Lanks these days and Iya in Indonesia. I also have a good freind and his wife visiting Chennai in India which was also hit.

I'd love to hear from you guys!

Re: Island Sands, are you ok?

My first thoughts were my wife's family, but they are not near Aceh. My second thought was "How's Sara??"
I hope you're safe.
Iyadiver should be ok: I don't know any reason he'd go up to Aceh.
Best wishes and prayers for the dead,
Erik Y.

Sara is Okay

Hi Everybody,
I just wanted to pass on that Sara (Island_Sands) is ok. I just spoke with her a few minutes ago and they are ok. She said the water got a bit high :) but they were in the southern islands and ok. The water came to...(I think she said 2 meters something) but since 1.8 or so is the Island height ... water was everywhere.

They are supposed to leaving for the main Island tomorrow but she seemed in good spirits.

The Islands and resorts got hit pretty bad I guess and the outlying Islands still have very limited contact... only cell phones and those lines are overloaded-working for the phone company gives me at least a little edge in getting through :cool:

Island_Sands sent her greetings to all though, and appreciates the concern and sends thanks to all.

Re: Sara is Okay

Oh, thank God! As soon as I saw the Reuters headline that the Maldives were hit by the surge, Sands was my first thought. Phew! At my age you start losing too many friends to natural causes and stupid living, and I don't have that many to spare!

That is good news, but I feel very sad for all the people who were and are affected. From one second to another, and your whole life is changed.

Re: Sara is Okay

Yes,
The damage was massive and the death toll just keeps rising. The caretaker for our compound found out his ENTIRE village on the east coast of Sri Lanka is gone. No phones so he cannot even figure out if his family is okay or not... We are hoping for the best for him since they are/were located on a bit of high ground. Poor guy ended up seeing the remnants of his neighborhood on one of the early bbc clips this afternoon.
