Cyclone Sidr makes landfall--beshi thanda bisti batash Dhaka
The USA media have given little or no prior coverage to Cyclone Sidr, probably the second largest cyclone to hit Bangladesh since the Bhola Cyclone in 1970, but now CNN and New York Times are covering the story. In the linked blog posts, you can read & see more about the approach of Sidr, accounts of landfall and conditions in Dhaka via the hurried words of Nari Jibon blogger Rafiq Islam .
Please keep in your thoughts and prayers the affected people in Bangladesh and India and be generous in helping the affected people.
