Ricevo, dal servizio SOS travel della mia azienda. Dettagli dimenticati, pare, dai giornalisti italici. Impegnatissimi a studiare la definizione dei mutui sub-prime, in fretta, prima che qualche altro colosso ci resti secco.
Media reports on 16 September indicate that Hurricane Ike killed at least 40 people and caused significant damage to the southern coastal region of Texas, after making landfall near Galveston on 13 September. The storm has left 30,000 people in the affected region living in shelters, and 3m more without electricity. Emergency crews have reportedly rescued 3,300 people trapped by flooding in the coastal areas in and around Galveston; approximately 20,000 more are still stranded on Galveston Island, and an additional 200 people remain stranded on the Bolivar Peninsula. Approximately 40,000 people who were evacuated from Galveston Island are being prevented from returning to their homes, and have been warned that they may not be able to do so for months.
