Indonesian Tsunami - Aussie Surfers Found Safe

For most people I know the following is an extremely popular boat trip destination. It seems again like another disaster in that part of the world; just glad to hear some good news!
“Disaster management officials in Jakarta on Tuesday put the number of missing at 167 but local officials said it was 380. Nine Australians and a Japanese man were in the area aboard surf charter boat MV Southern Cross when the quake struck.

Fears had been growing for the vessel, skippered by Australian Chris Scurrah and Japanese Akinori Fujita. But the men finally made contact with their Padang-based company Sumatran Surfariis on Tuesday night.”
