yikes.

My brother's plane landed in Beirut today at 4.15am. At 6.05am the airport runways were bombed and the flights were all diverted to Larnaca in Cyprus. My parents heard the bombing while they drank their morning coffee from their balcony.



I spoke with my family and everyone is safe. My brother and his wife just returned from their honeymoon in Italy. I'm supposed to pick them up from the airport here on Monday night, but we'll see if they can make it out from Beirut that soon.
