I'm sitting here, (apparently) warm and safe at a business meeting (ok, somewhat bored, but there's no physical danger in that). There's a presentation on the screen and someone droning on. My biggest concern, how soon to lunch.
I just got an IM ping from Shlomo in S'derot... (this is real time)
Shlomo: Hi.. how's it going today?
me: Ok at the moment, B"H.
Shlomo: Whoa! Kassam (missile) hit 30 seconds ago!
Shlomo: Sorry, I ran for camera...got it on film..the noise in the background. Sounds like it hit something.
(How much experience do you need to know by sound what missiles are hitting?)
Shlomo: Another warning... Oy!! Missile hitting
me: Stay safe, enough photos, are you in a safe place?

S'derot. Israel. Peace. Let's give more back, it brings peace.
Update 1: Heard from Shlomo briefly by phone. He's shaken up, actually bleeding from the mouth from seriously biting his own tongue. Nearby neighbor critically wounded taken to the hospital.
6 missile strikes so far today. No Israeli response.
Update 2: Video from Shlomo Wollins, IsraelReporter.Com, Sderot, Israel, from today...
Update 3: Shlomo adds, "Three more missile strikes by 7:30 am....all without alerts!
