Message to the President of the USA following Hurricane Katrina

Published 31 August 2005

I was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the deaths and injuries caused by hurricane Katrina, and the scale of the damage and destruction now becoming apparent across the southern states.

My sympathy goes to you and the people of the United States, especially to the families of those who have lost their lives, to the injured and to all who have been affected by this terrible disaster.
