Catskill disaster zone

My beloved Catskills has been truly devastated by Hurricane Irene.  We all thought we were in for it here in NYC.  Who knew the biggest damage in our state was going to be so far north and inland? This area was already having a hard time economically and now this devastation has hit it really hard and even more in need of help.

If you can spare anything, please go to The Mark Project (which is rural development organisation already trying to revitalise the area) or to the American Red Cross, and make a donation.

I am going to go up there and volunteering this weekend. Here's a video of some terrible flooding in a town called Fleischmanns!
