Dodged the bullet

 Cyclone Phailin made all the US news agencies as well, but thankfully due to aggressive evacuation by the Government of India, the damage is mostly to crops, with only a small handful of deaths.
 About a million people were evacuated. That's equivalent in size to the entire population of Washington, and many suburbs.
 Here in Hyderabad, we didn't see a drop of rain.


  1. Glad you weren't washed out to sea, and impressed that there was so little loss of life from such a large storm. Looks like you've found some interesting sightseeing to do - looking forward to hearing more when you're back home.

  2. It's been raining plenty in Kemp Mill.
