Breaking news this morning of a cyclone in Myanmar or the country that used to be known as Burma. There are approximately 4000 people dead and about 3,000 who are missing. The death toll is sure to rise.
Myanmar is a country that was once known as the largest rice producer/exporting country. Now days, their country is in much turmoil with human rights issues as well as financial infrastructure problems. The country is mainly Buddhist, in it’s religious practices.
There will be more information to come, regarding the destruction, as the day goes on; I am afraid. It will not only be devastating to Myanmar on a human level…it will also impact the world’s food prices…especially rice; which has already been selling for premium prices, with concerns about food hoarding around the world as food costs continue to rise.
