Miss Ida

Dear Hurricane Ida,

I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to Atlanta. I hope your stay is comfortable.

With Love,

Hurricane season is in full swing down in the southeast. So far it looks like we are just going to have to deal with Flash Flood Warnings here in Atlanta (which - unfortunately - we have kind of become used to around here) but we are nowhere near the coast. Please pray for all those who live in coastal communities, particularly those communities who are still recovering from past hurricanes.

It looks as though a lot of the hurricanes are reeking havoc on the third world right now - Ida left an approximately 14,000 homeless in El Salvador. 14,000. Man - most of them probably did not have much of a house to begin with. To lose the little that they had? How devastating.

The U.N. World & Food Program is on the ground in El Salvador trying to get food to people. You can read more about their efforts here.
