Relief Hampered due to fresh Tsunami Warnings

Two truck loads of materials (bedsheets, clothes, provisions, vessels, stoves etc.) which were collected by us (including some materials given by people through this blog) could not be distributed today because of fresh Tsunami warnings. The materials has now been kept in a safe place to be distributed on Saturday. More than 15 independent organisations carrying relief materials towards the affected areas were sent back. People along the coast were getting evacuated. It was a familiar sight, but only this time, they were more cautious.

Relief camps across the Eastern coast have been evacuated and people are now moving inland. It remains to see if the warnings are true, but there are prayers in everyone's lips that this should only be a rumour.

It has also been reported that the water levels has risen along the Marina and Srinivasapuram (the fishing hamlet affected most during the first Tsunami attack) was affected again. It is also understood that people were actually returning to their homes that they had deserted a few days back starting yesterday, only to be affected again.

Awaiting more reports from along the coast.
