NAGAPATTINAM, India (AFP) Dec 30, 2004
A government warning that high waves could strike again as aftershocks rattled Indonesia sent thousands fleeing in panic Thursday from the coastline of southern India.
"The waves are coming," people yelled as they fled on foot, buses and any mode of transport they could find.

The defence and home ministries sounded the warning to evacuate two kilometres (1.2 miles) inland after a new quake shook Indonesia.

In Port Blair, capital of India's battered Andaman islands, people ran for high ground fearing a sudden surge in water levels, a correspondent said.

The lieutenant governor and his family joined the rush in a wail of sirens on their official cars.

Civilians, aid workers and police fled along the Tamil Nadu coast here where thousands died in Sunday's tsunamis.

At the Christian pilgrimage town of Vailankanni, eight kilometres (five miles) from Nagapattinam, police directing traffic also joined the flight.

"Run! The waves are coming," shouted one policeman standing at a junction, clogged with traffic flooding out of town.

Vailankanni district administrator M. Murthy told AFP: "We have announced an immediate evacuation. "People living up to 2.5 kilometers from the seacoast are being evacuated."

The sea, however, appeared calm

Isha FOUNDATION (www.ishafoundation.org) is an NGO that has embarked on tsunami relief work.

Isha Centers in the towns of Chennai, Coimbatore, Salem, Cuddalore, Chidambaram, Tuticorin, Nagercoil and Nagapattanam have begun immediate relief efforts in the affected areas, in coordination with the district and state administrations.

In Chidambaram and Cuddalore, relief camps by Isha meditators have been operating from the first day, offering food and shelter to the victims. Chennai meditators have been collecting clothes and other relief items in large quantities. A group of women volunteers has been touring the effected areas, talking to victims, counseling them and offering support and inner-strength to the womenfolk in distress.

Some other examples of relief work undertaken by Isha volunteers are: Salem Center has offered 100 bags of rice and several bundles of clothing including bed sheets and blankets, which have already been transported to the disaster areas. Tuticorin meditators have offered medicines and 500 sets of new clothes for the victims. Coimbatore meditators have dispatched two truckloads of relief materials. More such efforts are underway and with additional meditators arriving from different centers to the disaster areas, the rescue and relief work is expected to cover more remote areas.

At the disaster areas, large patches of stagnant seawater, carcass of livestock, and contamination of drinking water sources are some worrisome issues as outbreak of epidemics seems to be imminent. Unable to bear the stench of the dead bodies and fearing large-scale outbreaks of infections, many villagers have deserted what remains of their homes.

As the government agencies are focusing on collecting, mass burial and cremation of dead bodies, there is a pressing need for immediate relief and rehabilitation efforts.

ISHA DOES A LOT OF WORK FOR RURAL REEJUVENATION. Now,
Isha has offered the services of the seven Mobile Health Clinics to the state government of Tamil Nadu for deployment in any affected area. Fully equipped and complete with its medical team and volunteers, the Mobile Health Clinics are effectively serving in Vellankovil and Nagapattanam, areas that are the worst hit and most deficient in relief efforts. Isha teachers and Bhramhacharies have been sent to various remote places to co-ordinate relief efforts.

While the damage cannot be undone, we can lessen the suffering of the survivors, who are almost entirely from poorer communities, by reaching out to them during this moment of extreme distress. Starting off the survivors on a whole new life would be the most humane gesture on our part.

Isha Foundation implores volunteers to join its efforts in running relief camps, collecting and distributing relief articles and make generous monetary contributions for the welfare of the victims. Proposals for large-scale reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts are also being worked out. Even a small gesture by us can make a big difference in the lives of the survivors

We invite contributions towards:

Sustenance of Isha Teachers and volunteers in the relief areas
Medical supplies for four Mobile Health Clinics in operation in the area
Food and Clothing for the victims
Building of dwellings and purchase of fishing boats.nets etc.
