In the Spring of 1996, three more Everest Expeditions reported progress on the World Wide Web. On May 11th, 1996, a vicious storm caught climbers high on the mountain and tragically, ten climbers died. Dramatic rescues were also reported. Tom Whittaker was caught in a similar storm on Mt. Everest in 1989. This story and a chronicle of Tom's involvement in Mt.Everest expeditions is covered in his article "Against All Odds."
