On the 18/19th July, Tristan suffered a terrifying storm, the worst for nearly twenty years. Severe damage was suffered by residential, administration buildings as well as to the school and fish processing factory. Thankfully nobody was injured, but life on the island has been severely affected and work is in progress to repair the buildings. Materials for this task are on their way from South Africa on the MV Edinburgh, the same boat that took me to the island last year for my ZD9CW operation, a rough journey of seven days.
Perhaps DXers would consider making a donation to help with the daunting task of restoring Tristan to some sort of normality.
