Natural disaster

Mitch Emhoff welcomed his wife, Beth Emhoff who just came back from Hong Kong .The day after, Beth had to be hospitalized for “a severe flu” but she died afterward. The same symptoms appeared on his son. Without knowing it, Beth brought a deadly virus from her trip. In few days, the world had faced the highest contagious disease ever. International team started to investigate on the origin of the virus, looked for the anti-virus, provided first aid and applied procedure to contain the disease. Nonetheless, panic and rebellion took place. Everyone tried to face the contagion as they could but some took advantage from it.

I wouldn’t mind watching this movie just for the bunch of superstars in it : Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Marion Cottillard. But the Director, an Academy Winner, Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s eleven, The informant!) gives us a clever point of view in  this thriller : “Nothing spreads like fear”. The movie follows different people who are facing a situation whom they don’t have any solution. All along, we discover many characters and their role, their ideas and we still can get to the main plot. “Contagion” (2011) is certainly a film worth seeing.

Very recently, Madagascar faced Mother Nature’s creation “Giovanna” . Rarely does a cyclone pass cross our island. Mostly, they shyly show up to our coast and leave. In my knowlegde, the only cyclone which had hit all Madagascar was “Geralda” in 1994. I was too young to know exactly what happened, all I could remember was that I was so glad we didn’t have class that day. This time, surprised I was that at 03:00 in the morning, I was awaked up by gusts of winds outside. The fear came along… The worst is when you are not aware of what’s going on. But to any situation, there should always be some measures to be taken. Having right information can help and save. For that purpose, some bloggers use crowd sourcing by creating crowdmap : a website which gather all pieces information related to the cyclone “Giovanna” sent by citizens of Madagascar.

Up to now, authorities report at least 10 dead, and this number would increase because there are many missing cases. Wherever you are in Madagascar, you still can report incidents, or share your testimonies by sending sms at 0326705819 / 0340222049, by emailing at cyclonegiovanna@gmail.com or by using directly the website http://cyclonegiovanna.crowdmap.com.
