For DUers w/family & friends in London
Especially friends/family who are there on vacation: I have my London guidebook with me so if you want to know where your friends/family members in relation to the explosions & you haven't heard from them (or just want to know for your peace of mind), PM me & I'll look it up. :)

1. My sister and niece are there
I have no idea, however, where they are staying. They were due to leave London for Paris, so perhaps they are already in Paris. But we've not heard from them, and we're worried.

SO, thanks for the offer, but as we don't know where they were staying and/or flying out, there's no way to find them until they call.

But, do you have any idea where the location of the bombings occured by your maps/guidebook? I'm going through some reports from today, and listening to NPR, but haven't got a good idea of where these explosions took place exactly. I can pass on that info to my mom, who is just sick with worry. Thanks in advance.

2. My Daughter is there on her school trip
High honors students were invited on a 10 day Scotland/London trip. 5 days basically locked down in Lockerbie because of the G8 conference (great planning huh), and now this. 22 students are there.The tour company will proceed tonight on the Midnight Express to London, in spite of the concern of the parents. My daughter got through to us this morning our time right after it happened, but now the British phone system is like a 5 pound bag with 10 pounds of shit in it.

We're very concerned. The school nixed a trip to France and Estern Europe for the 'safety' of the British Isles. My Daughter had some nasty things to say about * this morning. Just like most she has met in Scotland.

They hate him, but not us. He's brought this to the front door of the World instead of squashing it when he had the chance.

6. Do you know what area their hotel is in?
I could look that up for you, if you don't want to broadcast the name of it on an internet board. Or PM me. :)
