It has just been reported by NASA this morning that there is a State of Emergency in Texas, more specifically, Houston. The space shuttle Columbia lost contact with Nasa at 9:00 AM ET (It's 9:56 ET now) while it was re-entering the Earth's atmosphere. Debris is being reported to be falling from the sky. It is highly advised to stay away from any falling debris if spotted, and contact the local authorities. The space shuttle Columbia was carrying 6 American astronauts and the first Israeli astronaut. Although I'm in Canada, I thought it was my duty to inform you before it is possibly too late. For more information on what has happened, turn on CNN. My heart and prayers go to the crew of the shuttle Columbia and to anyone in Texas who may be harmed.
