Update on Tegucigalpa from International K-9 Search and Rescue Services:
Well we're back in the USA.
We just got back from Tegucigalpa, Honduras where we spent 9 days
locating victims bodies, with our search dogs and digging the bodies out
and recovering them. SAR Dog Valorie and Yogi were the only search dogs
from the USA according to the local government. There were two search
dogs from the Mexican Government that worked well also.
Our search dog teams hit in 28 areas, and so far we've recovered 8
bodies. The Bomberos "Fire Dept" team will dig out the rest later. God
it was horrible. The people are dying everywhere from disease and lack
of food and water. It's horrible what the devistation has done. Anyone
who can help, please contact me and I'll talk with you first hand about
what these people need and what we need to get back there and help.
We're going to try and get back and do some more work as soon as we can
