Honiara: Tearful residents and aid workers in the flood-ravaged Solomon Islands are continuing to scour debris for bodies three days after flash floods tore through the capital Honiara. Although the chances of finding more survivors appeared remote, officials said on Sunday they could not give up hope. "We had one father who had been separated from his wife and children for two days and we were able to track the family down," Red Cross aid worker Cherise Chadwick said.The death toll was put at 21, with aid agencies saying up to 40 people remained unaccounted for and about 49,000 had been displaced. "Some people who went into the river will probably not be found as they would have been swept out to sea," Ms Chadwick said, adding that the Red Cross had played a leading role rescuing people after the Matanikau River burst its banks. Floodwaters and landslides swept away riverside communities as Honiara was pounded by a torrential tropical storm on Thursday, causing severe infrastructure damage to fresh water supplies, sewerage systems and electricity.SMH

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
