US Embassy e-alerts

The below content was emailed to me by the US Embassy last week.  I thought it was rather interesting (I've been working on identifying adequate sources of news in English here).  For those of you worry-worts, this is at least a 6 hour drive from Tel Aviv.  Google the country of Israel, and you can see it's at the very southern tip.  I hear there was a sqirmish in the north with Lebanon as well, but that's about 2 hours drive north from Tel Aviv.

"Warden Message as of August 2, 2010

This morning, August 2, 2010, at approximately 0800 hours, five rockets were fired towards the city of Eilat, a resort town located in the south of Israel. Media reports that the rockets were fired from an area in the Sinai, with several of the rockets landing in open areas in Eilat. At least one of the rockets landed in Jordan causing several injuries. Anyone traveling to Eilat or in Eilat should be aware of this incident. Israel requires buildings to have bomb shelters. U.S. citizens should take steps to find out the location of the nearest bomb shelter."
