Animals finally feel tsunami

Animal health authorities have received reports from the east coast that close to a thousand animals have died recently after drinking water contaminated by tsunami tidal waves which hit the coast more than a month ago.

Sources said that the areas which came under sea water in the east continue to have blackish water in puddles here and there deep inland, and animals such as cattle had died after drinking water from such water sources.

The reports mainly came from Pottuvil, and close to a thousand animals had reportedly died up to yesterday. A team of veterinarians had already been dispatched to Pottuvil to verify the cause. Meanwhile, residents in Pottuvil are said to be in fear as the sea water off the Pottuvil coast had turned dark and blackish again, reminding them of the tsunami waves which were dark in colour.

Hi there, I just wanted to say that this is a great idea for a blog. Well done. My family and i have been raising money for a charity mainly helping in the Tamil Nadu region of India. We managed to raise nearly 23,000 Euros which was fantastic and amazing so hopefully the money and all the rest that people are raising will help to ease the suffering in SEA.
