Burma Cyclone


Resources: Asia Society posts cyclone resources & pictures by karenzr

Excerpts from new Asia Society page on disaster relief efforts in Myanmar:

<<An Asia Society contact, reporting from one of the few available Internet connections in Yangon on Wednesday, May 7, wrote: “Yangon is like a post-war city. No water, no electricity. Food prices are three times [higher]…. The price of gas [is up] two times. People need a lot of things, but [the] government has no proper plan to support [us].”>>

Page also contains links to relief groups, a Washington Post audio interview with Asia Society expert Suzanne DiMaggio, and photographs, including this beautiful shot by Khin Maung Win (AFP/Getty Images.)
