I saw on News Fix tonight that communications are still bad in the area and few people outside of there are hearing word still from those in the area. Glad Canada is on it's way, I'm sure it's not easy to organize something 1/2 way around the world.

I hope you hear from her or her family soon.

From what I can gather, the only coms coming out of the area are from a few satellite phones or satellite up links from what media is on the ground. Basically the storm pretty much wiped out the entire logistics and communication infrastructure on Leyte, there are still towns and villages that have not been contacted yet.....very grim...
Always ask why.

I was going to send you a PM today asking you if you'd heard anything. I'm so glad to hear she's fine, now to get her into your arms...

Given the choice of battling Typhoon Yolanda or Immigration Canada....bring on the wind and rain, figure I`d have an easier fight on my hands.

Glad to hear she is okay...hope you get to talk soon. I can't imagine not knowing...would really put you into a panic!

Best wishes, especially going into the holiday season!

Later.
