The 'Other Side' of Sandy

"THE 'OTHER SIDE' OF SANDY NOT SEEN ON TV OR IN NEWSPAPERS.

Sandy also struck CUBA, JAMAICA, HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Images that you will not see in the newspapers or on TV. There are now many more homeless people in Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic suffering from the ravages of hurricane Sandy passing through their respective nations, prior to the hurricane also pummeling the east coast of the United States. In solidarity with all people, in light of the loss of their homes and loved ones, we must also speak out for them. Pain and suffering does not care about borders and true compassion has no flag to wave. Our hearts are with all who are impacted by this international tragedy. Please become more informed and support the efforts of groups attempting to help lives everywhere, who know no borders."


But, I must admit, Boston.com's The Big Picture did show more than just NYC photos...

People walk on a street littered with debris after Hurricane Sandy hit Santiago de Cuba on Oct. 26. The Cuban government said on Thursday night that 11 people died when the storm barrelled across the island, most killed by falling trees or in building collapses in Santiago de Cuba province and neighboring Guantanamo province - Desmond Boylan/Reuters
