Hurricane Tomas Devastation- St.Lucia

Published: Nov 02, 2010 4:47 AM EDT

Hello,

I have attached images from the recent hurricane Tomas devastation in the small island of St.Lucia. The island has suffered greatly through this storm with entire villages being washed away, to main roadways being demolished. Many people are without power, food, clean water, and shelter. People have even resorted to slaughtering drowned animals for food which is likely to cause a massive spread of disease. Villages have been isolated by landslides without communication and transportation to the rest of the island. Currently our international airport has been shut down due to severe damage as well.

Relief and aid is in dire need in this country as the death toll is likely to rise with each passing moment. Please help me get the word out about this disaster so the citizens of this beautiful country can be restored to somewhat of a livable environment. I appreciate your help in this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.

Thank you
