Still raining

It was raining in parts of El Salvador today. The country continues under a double red alert for the threat of additional volcanic eruptions and for possible landslides. School classes are suspended for two more days. The number of persons in shelters is approximately 70,000.

Today is also the 19th anniversary of the 1986 earthquake which left more than one thousand Salvadorans dead and ten thousand wounded.

Please God - if you're up there - give these people a break. It's bad enough that their gas prices are much higher than ours. What more do you want from them - they're already poor. How much more shall they suffer?
