    Let us pray for this poor people first. All these are man made too. When our MPs get free land and build big big houses with planing properly and do not care for the environment this what happens. First the poor and next will be them. God is up there Watching every thing.

    Hugo Chavez left his palace for flood victims and used a tent instead (maybe to show the world how caring he is, yet he did so).
