Uh oh

The team leader from this trip I'm taking has a strange way of encouraging us:
Dear THT Bangladesh members,
Tomorrow I will be flying to Bangladesh. I will send you a complete report from Dhaka when I arrive there. 
As you know Dhaka is now being threatened by floods but the part of the city where we will be working is on higher ground and safe for the moment. Most of the flooding is in the suburbs and countryside. Forty percent of the country is under water. Please do not worry!! You will be safe. (If not, you will have an adventure?)
Check the weather channel on the Internet. You will see that Dhaka is schedule for a lot of rain in the days to come. All that being said, the programs we planned will continue as scheduled.
A defense of Empiricism is forthcoming.
