Haiti benefit in Rock Hill

Catskill Chronicle reports that the town of Thompson and Sullivan County country radio station Thunder 102 are teaming up on a benefit for Haiti earthquake victims this Thursday.

Thunder 102 and the Town of Thompson are asking residents across the Hudson Valley and Catskills to show their support for the cause. According to the International Red Cross, over 3 million people were affected by the natural disaster and further reports have indicated the death toll could reach one hundred thousand.

The mind boggles at such large numbers. For a little context, the entire population of Sullivan County in 2007 was 76,303.
