MEANWHILE, in Florida...

Florida Couple Determined to Have Their Oct. 8 Wedding Despite Hurricane Matthew

No storm is going to stop this couple from tying the knot. Jaime Gurnavage and Ryan Gordon of Suntree, Florida, are still planning to have their Cocoa Beach wedding Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. despite Hurricane Matthew. And yes, it will be right on the beach.

“We’re definitely going to have a beach wedding no matter what,” Gurnavage, 34, told ABC News. “I have been planning this wedding for the past year, down to every last detail, from a whimsical wedding on the shore of Cocoa Beach to the classic beach-chic reception with an amazing Caribbean dinner spread with a magical floating sky lantern send off into the night’s sky overlooking the ocean to finish off the evening.”

The determined bride has been in touch with her wedding coordinator from their venue, Ocean Landings Resort, who told her the resort will most likely reopen for business on Saturday.

“It’s closed Thursday and Friday. But she’s saying it’ll probably plan to open tomorrow,” said Gurnavage. “We expect it [the hurricane] to move past this evening. My fiancé and I expect to head back to Brevard County tonight. My dad said if there’s a lot of debris on the beach he’ll grab a bunch of guys and get a rake and rake out the sand.”

The couple evacuated to Orlando along with their guests who were already in town for the nuptials. But the show must go on.

“We’ve just been hanging out here until they open up Ocean Landing again,” she explained. “I have about 20 or 30 family members that were coming down from Pennsylvania. That’s where we’re from. They had hotel room reservations for Ocean Landing where the wedding is going to be.”

Syria: Hospitals hit repeatedly by Russian and Syrian airstrikes, condemning hundreds to death

Out of only eight hospitals still functioning in east Aleppo, four hospitals and a blood bank were damaged by bombing in four days, one of them twice.

On 30 September, two hospitals in east Aleppo supported by MSF, among others, were damaged by continuous indiscriminate bombing. A blood bank was also damaged. Despite the damage, medical teams at the three facilities managed to continue their work.

On 1 October, a major trauma hospital was so severely damaged by bombing that it was forced to close. Two days later, as construction teams worked to repair the damage, the area was bombed again, killing a number of people and further damaging the hospital.

On 2 October, a surgical hospital was damaged by bombing, but remained open.

“The few remaining hospitals are collapsing under a flow of hundreds of wounded lying in agony on the floors of wards and corridors,” says Pablo Marco, MSF’s operations manager in the Middle East. “Doctors are performing brain and abdominal surgeries for the victims of bombing on the floors of the emergency rooms, for lack of available operating theatres. Russia and Syria must stop this carnage now.”

And the silence from Snowden and Greenwald is deafening... Where are all the calls for an independent international investigation? Where is the demand for accountability? Where is the merciless criticism of Russia's foreign policy, and scorched-Earth military strategy which is *intentionally* targeting civilians??
