Phone Lines Restored in Yangon (Rangoon)

Phone lines have been restored in downtown Rangoon (Yangon), and Internet is back. With the exception of fallen trees and satellite dishes, things are life is resuming a sense of normacy.
Most houses in Rangoon are all brick and the walls are 1 to 3 feet thick and built to last back in the British days. The hardest hit area was in the surrounding suburbs and villages because the homes there are built on wood with bamboo stems due to poverty. They fared badly against 120mph wind and 12-ft waves.
