Affects of Tsunami on East Africa/Zanzibar

by Zanzibargirl Online Now Dec 27, 2004 at 6:52 PM

I know Tanzania's shoreline was slightly hit by the Tsunami. I was just curious, does anyone know the affects that it has had along any of the coastline more specifically, and especially in Zanzibar... I know lots of people were evacuated... News mentions Dar Es Salaam and Mombasa, but havent heard anything about Zanzibar.... Also my condolences and thoughts to all those affected. I wish I could do so much more, I feel so helpless in these situations... If only something could be done.... If only all of us on VT could think of something we could do... These countries welcome us always travelling through... It is awful to see such devastation and not be able to do anything about it. Sheryn
