Default To scalerman: I'm working for a TV station..

Thank you for your notes. I'm not working for a paper but for a national TV station in Indonesia as a news producer. I went to Meulaboh to make an in-depth report about the city that had been cut-off from the outside world since the tsunami waves wiped out almost the entire population. I got there on the 5th day after the disaster, by using a Cessna plane that managed to land on the damaged runway. The plane also brought about one tonne of medicines, food, fresh water and milk. These aids were among the first ones that could be handed over to the survivors in Meulaboh.
Since today, the situation have been improving. More aids are coming through the road that have been opened throughout the weekend. More corpses are burried (more than 10.000 live were gone). But for people of Meulaboh, their beautiful city won't be the same anymore..
