I feel so sorry for the victims of natural disasters. How terrible.
It is a real shame that we cannot distribute the rain around the world where it will do good and not harm.

I have edited the title to reflect the new death toll estimates and included the news article at the bottom of the original ATSNN article.

This news has been all over the papers here in Puerto Rico since the flooding was pretty bad in some places here on the island. But not as bad as those places.
