2. Pray there will not be too much damage
American ,   USA   (10.12.13)
Hope it will pass without causing too much damage.
3. Indian cyclone
Valerie ,   Israel   (10.12.13)
The Indians appear to be better organised in evacuating their citizens than the Americans did at the time of Hurricane Katrina.
4. To: No. 3
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.13.13)
You're wrong. The United States government, as well as the governor of the State of Louisiana, ordered evacuation. Not everyone left, which is why there was such a high death toll. The same thing occurred in Superstorm Sandy. There were mandatory evacuation orders issued, but not everyone left. Sometimes, despite your utmost efforts, you cannot protect people from themselves.
5. Cyclone in India
yoel ,   Israel   (10.15.13)
As my feelings go out to all those people who have loat their homes and belongings. Natural disasters cannot be forseen-I beleive that India is now much better organized to deal with threats like these- People be strong and you shall overcome- Bless you!.
6. To Sarah B. US/Israel, at no. 4.

To live through a cyclone is a real, very terrible, dangerous, catastrophic experience, for each and everyone. Salute, Mrs/ dear young lady, from Sjoerd Ruurd.
