This one's for real as far as the"curse" is concerned.
CNN International via Twitter:

Quote
(CNN)An estimated 25,000 people are being evacuated from a northern Cambodian province following extensive flooding due to the collapse of a massive hydropower dam in neighboring Laos

Authorities in Stung Treng province are attempting to evacuate towns and villages downstream from the dam, which has caused waters to rise above 12 meters (39 feet) in places, according to Cambodia's state news agency

The agency quoted a spokesman for the Cambodian Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology who said there was no sign of waters receding as of Thursday afternoon.
The collapse of the hydropower dam has already left at least 26 people dead and another 6,000 homeless in southern Laos, the worst disaster faced by the small Southeast Asian country in decades, according to Laotian Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith.

"The strong tide of water from the broken dam immediately flowed through the community and washed away houses and villagers; many people were unable to move to the highland," Sisoulith said at a news conference Wednesday after visiting the affected areas.

An earthquake has struck Indonesia today:

At least 10 dead after 6.4 earthquake hits Indonesia island

JAKARTA A powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the popular tourist destination of Lombok in Indonesia on Sunday, killing 10 people and damaging many buildings, authorities said.

The quake hit Lombok island early in the morning when many people were still sleeping. Around 40 people were injured and many fled into open fields away from collapsed buildings.

The South-Indian state of Kerala (visited on TAR4 and TAR20) is experiencing massive flash floods. The rains have only worsened and the entire state is practically submerged, and everybody is trapped in as the rivers and dams have overflowed and blocked railway lines and the airport. People are losing their lives by the minute, there has been a huge damage to property and the central government has still done NOTHING :)

I've been stuck in my office for 36 hours continuous because the rains have flooded the basement (and the first floor!) and the rains don't stop, but the central government has done nothing so far. People in the north argue that Kerala "deserve the flood as people of Kerala eat beef." it's disgusting and honestly this just shows the massive divide in culture and mindset between north-india and south-india.

I'm so done.

Ironically, the UAE government does more for us than the central government.

I don't get this thread.
Is it just "world disaster watch"?

I know what the actual "TAR disaster curse" was, but now this just seems like "post whatever happened in a place TAR visited 15 years ago".
Not saying this to diminish any of the happenings today, just pointing out that.... well, the show has been on a while and been to quite a few places.

The Lookout Cafe from TAR 27 burned down in a fire last Christmas Eve and is being rebuilt. Thankfully, no one was injured.
