Tabasco - A Mexican Katrina

By now just about everyone has head about the devastation in the southern Mexican state of Tabasco. The flooding has left nearly one million inhabitants homeless, many still stranded on rooftops. And now concerns of water-borne diseases like cholera and e-coli contamination are on the rise. Today, I found this great local Tobasco blog with some very dramatic images and vids. For a local's view of the disaster, check it out. It's in Spanish, but the message is clear.
