    Can't stop thinking about it. Elon seems to have a possible solution with mini-submarines but still 17 hours travel time to Thailand and forecast of severe rainfall over the next few days. Time is running out. Feeling really anxious and helpless. :(

    Thank you for caring @commasign This is a potential tragedy of major proportions. Fortunately, there appears to be a concerted rescue effort in affect at the moment with a good chance of success. I am sending good vibrations to everyone involved for a happy resolution. I will continue to monitor the news today for updates.

    I am proud of Elon and the Tesla family for offering support to Thailand. Frequently during major tragedies, (I'm thinking of Puerto Rico), Tesla is there with financial support. Tesla is a company with [​IMG]

    If your not concerned about this your not human. Regardless of the methods or people involved lets hope for the best possible outcome.
    And yes I am proud that Tesla is involved.
