Tropical storm Ketsana

I was up in Dalat (Tuysonvien) when the storm hit our coastal provinces last Tuesday. I copied these photos from the media to show you what happened.
These were taken in Hue.

And Danang.

Dalat was also badly impacted with pine trees falling onto the streets and killing a young woman.

Now these provinces are facing a historical flood! The country is mobilizing its force to relieve those affected by the deadly storm.

I hope that you are not affected! I thought of you when I learnt of this flood from the TV news. My sympathy goes to the people who lost their loved ones. I pray that situation will recover soon and those who are mourning would not be so depressed. It has been a few bad news altogether. Over here, closer to Malaysia is the earthquake at Sumatera. Some high rise offices here felt the tremors also. Take care!

Many thanks, Steph. I was quite safe, inside the house. Yesterday when I made the trip back down to Saigon, I saw many up-rooted trees in Dalat city streets. The weather is becoming more and more unpredictable; it seems that Mother Nature is being angry with us!
