|This photo was sent from Myanmar today by my colleague Gordon Bacon, who's coordinating IRC's emergency response to the cyclone disaster. Gordon says: “I saw hundreds of these massive concrete electric cable posts, snapped in two like match sticks. You can imagine what the storm did to thatch homes and the families that lived in them.” How can you help?
