WHAT'S HAPPENING by Susan Mangatal
To all among our on-line family:
all the hurricanes have calmed down. Thank God! Of course,
this last one Jeanne did some major devastation on her way through the
states. She slammed into Florida again, and this time she did affect
many of our family members on the Golf Coast. While talking to one of our
family member during the hurricane, we could hear the strong winds beating
against the house, along with the banging of the fallen trees and
branches, not to mention the loud sounds of the rain slamming against the
roof and windows. They actually made the closet their place to hang
out during the storm, even the pet poodle Coco (the newest member in our
family). Friends in Central Florida indicated to me that we would be
surprised to see the destruction of the places that we were so familiar
with and loved. Trees gone, and homes destroyed, most importantly
many still do not have power (going on 3 weeks now). One of
close friends indicated that generators are a major commodity, the way he
phrased it was funny…he stated, "People are fighting over
generators like it's crack". Very descriptive I must say, but
nothing to laugh at! He actually asked that we try to located one in
our area for him and drop it off on our way to Miami. So if anyone has a
small generator they want to donate, please let us know.
all the reports, it really hit Florida bad again with 120-mph winds.
Jeanne ripped off roofs, left stop signs dangling precariously, destroyed
communities, flooded bridges, killed about 6 people, knocked down the
already week buildings and structures left from Frances (and the rains
from Ivan), and left about 5.2 million people without electricity while
pulling down trees and shredding power lines. People were told to
boil their tap water before drinking it to avoid contaminants.
President Bush even declared a major disaster area in Florida.
then moved on to Georgia with approx. 50 mph winds, causing lots of
flooding and major power outages. The Carolinas, Virginia and our
area here in DC/MD got lots of rain as well.
we all know it slammed into Haiti and left over 1,500 people dead,
approximately 2,601 injured, thousands still missing, and over 200,000
homeless. There are lots of looting and fighting for food amongst
the people, due to the food shortage. Many people are suffering from
diarrhea, while many of the children have contracted Gangrene. It also
tore across the Bahamas leaving neighborhoods under 6 feet of water.
all so horrible...one day you have your life, your home and even your
family, and in the next few hours, all is gone! The suffering still
continues, and we ask all of you on our on-line community to help as much
as you can. Call your Embassies to find out how you can donate and
help in any way.
for us here in DC, this weekend we/you have 2 more opportunities to donate
and express our love. The first is at ICE Productions "Miami
Jump Off" Event that is taking place on Saturday night, October 2,
2004. All donations will be accepted at this event.

Relief Fund Benefit Concert. This takes place on Sunday, October 3,

Masters Steel Orchestra. Also, additional artists will be performing

Connection is very happy and pleased from the overwhelming response they
received over this past weekend and throughout this week, regarding
donations for the Hurricane victims. Things are so great, they are
running out of storing space. For those who have contacted them for
a pick-up, please be assured someone from the organization will be by to
pick up your donations. Beverlee Dawkins (President) and Yolanda
Alleyne (Vice President) are extremely pleased with the outpouring of love
and support from all in our Community. We here are Arious are very
thankful and pleased with this major outpour of love and support.

For the folks in upper New York who e-mailed us regarding your donations, we will make sure a New York Representative from Caribbean Connections contact you very soon. They will make arrangements to collect your donations.In closing let me briefly share Todd’s thoughts and feelings on a wonderful event we checked out last week.
The time is drawing near for Miami Carnival, and things are really heating up here in DC. Many folks are traveling to Miami for all the festivities and fun. We will try to check out both Carnivals, but last year we had lots of fun at the Breward Carnival in Fort Lauderdale. Of course, we have planned to check out all the pre-carnival and after Carnival Events. Hopefully, we will get some more details on all the different events taking place in Miami for next weeks' e-mail. We will definitely be hanging out and supporting ICE Productions "Stamina" Event at the Marlin Hotel (scroll down to view the ad below). As Todd stated last week, if you haven't booked your hotels, airfare or rental cars yet, hit us back because we have got some discounted rates on all.
The New Orleans Carnival has been rescheduled, and will take place from Friday, October 22, 2004-Sunday, October 24, 2004. See the Details Below or check out their site at www.bayoubacchanal.com.
