While New York hits the headlines with Hurricane Sandy, Southern India has its own environmental problems. Cyclone Nilam has hit South Eastern Chennai (where I believe Nuala is planning a trip soon) and is heading West. Fortunately it seems to have been less destructive than first thought. I haven’t been able to work out if its passing Nuala’s way, but I think it’ll probably be further North.
If you’re in the path Nuala, please take care!

Keep safe anyone in the region, especially any Project Trust volunteers affected.
Maybe Nuala will update us with a local view – assuming it hasn’t caused even worse problems with the power.
