IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE BOMBAY ATTACKS 13 JULY 2011

Three bomb blasts went off in the city of Mumbai between 6.54pm and 7.05pm. All IEDs. (source: NDTV)

General advice:
* Speculation is worthless
* This is not the time to spread rumours
* Calling for Kasab's death isn't going to help the people currently dying (and therefore whether or not it's his birthday is of NO CONSEQUENCE — YOUR CITY IS UNDER ATTACK, PEOPLE — it's NOT his birthday, BTW)
* Don't go to the scenes
* Stay home, get off the streets
* See what kinds of blood donations are needed and if you can help/mobilize people to help
* Offer your help through http://ow.ly/5Dvul or #here2help and monitor #needhelp if you are able to
* If you are not in an emergency, get off the phone — use the wifi, not mobile data, to get in touch with your family — and use SMS
* Get off the EDGE/3G/GRPS — keep the data pipes clear for those to need it
* If you are trying to reach friends or family in Bombay but phone lines are hogged, message some of the folks at #here2help
* Stay off roads, keep them clear for police and ambulances
* Weird sickos who are spamming helpline nos or personal nos of strangers offering help: sod off
