Latin America Offers Help

This is very meaningful considering that Latin America is usually looking for help from the U.S.:

MEXICO CITY Some Latin American nations today offered to help the U-S deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Those countries also are reaching out to thousands of migrants and expatriates affected by this week's storm that ravaged parts of Louisiana and Mississippi.

Nicaragua and Honduras were both devastated by flooding from Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Those countries have offered to send flooding and sanitation experts.

Cuba and Venezuela have offered to help too, despite political differences with Washington.

Mexican President Vicente Fox offered a T-V address in Spanish and English urging migrants to seek the help of emergency officials -- and not worry about being deported.

U-S Ambassador Tony Garza today thanked Mexico for its expressions of sympathy and support and said America welcomed any assistance.

Did you see Castro has offered to help with Katrina? Funny how he has never offered to help South Florida in any storm recovery!
