And this just in from Jim Andrews, a senior meteorologist from Accuweather, who looked at the devastation in Myanmar and said:
"The impact was maybe the same order of magnitude as Hurricane Katrina...."
Let's see...Katrina killed fewer than 2,000 people. Myanmar is looking at possibly 100,000 dead. And while Katrina occurred in a modern society, Myanmar's a third world country run by a brutal dictatorship without the means to deal with it and too much pride to accept help.
Oh, yeah...that's almost as bad as Katrina.
