holy shit

CBC is reporting that 4 bombs went off in London during their rush hour. Reports say that over 30 are dead and 300 injured. My thoughts are with the people of London, what a terrible day.

More coverage:
CBC

BBC


Foreign Affairs has set up a hotline for Canadians with strong reasons to believe their relatives might have been travelling in London transit this morning. They should have on hand the missing person's full name, date of birth and passport number before calling the toll-free hotline at 1-800-387-3124.

I've been trying all morning to get ahold of some friends of mine in London: Amika, Charlie! If you read this, return my email and phone message!!!!!! I'm worried!!!

UPDATE: I did get ahold of Ms. Amika Schodie in London and she is fine. She's decided not to go to work this evening. I feel a world better right now.

The sad thing is that, little by little, attacks like this are becoming normalized.
