By now most everyone has heard of the devastating earthquake/tsunami
that struck south and southeast Asia Sunday morning. Phuket Island, off
the southwestern coast of Thailand suffered quite a bit of damage. One of
our International Aroid Society members lives on Puket Island, Annop

I spoke with his sister earlier this evening and she said that Annop and his
family are OK. For those aroiders and ginger collectors that know
and correspond with Annop, it will probably be some time before he
has email working again.
