Mother Nature Strikes Again - Tragedy in India

A the time of this post, 749 people have now been confirmed dead as the result of several neighborhoods being flooded out in in Western India (including 376 in Bombay.)

Most deaths were caused by collapsing walls, drownings and electrocutions, he said.

At least 15 people, including seven children, died late Thursday in a Bombay shantytown stampede set off by rumors of a dam bursting, the officials said. More than 25 others were injured.

Nature again reminds us what a powerful force it is and I am sure that as it continues to rain emergency aid may be brough in from outside of India.

My prayers are with those in India right now.

UPDATE: Death Toll Rises to 910 after new rains pound the area.
