I agree! Satellite imagetry was crystal clear, up close and quite personal in recent storm damage in the USA. First there was a map tracking storms in several states, Mississippi, Tennessee, ...; there were camera icons that when clicked - instantantly vivid photos appeared as if I had taken them myself.

Hi.. I'm a first timer here. I thought this blog was about helping people in their first time in the net, but I guess I'm wrong. This blog is really has really great dedication for the natural disaster otherwise it won't make it to Blogger's blog of note list :) Congratz...

I just want to give some suggestions, if you really are a non profit organization, try put adsense to make money for donation to all the disaster you're talking about. It's a fun way to give back to the people in need. I think it will help a lot too :)

The Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuary, a cherished World Heritage site and home to 30% of the world’s remaining pandas, was damaged by the quake. Check out (a grassroots initiative created by the United Nations Foundation with Expedia, Inc. and UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre) to see how you can help save the pandas.

Just in case anyone is interested, there's an upcoming webinar, sponsored by the US Department of Commerce, on the sustainable rebuilding of Sichuan's schools. It should be an interesting perspective.

I found an interesting website that shows research on this theory of earthquake prediction by measuring electromagnetic signals at various stations in California:
