Typhoon Yolanda

Just days ago, Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) destroyed cities in Luzon and Visayas, particularly Tacloban and Ilo-ilo. More than 10,000 people are believed to be dead. Thousands more are missing because of the storm surge. Communication lines are out and the military and police officers are not enough to control the people, who are now resulting to looting and scavenging, even with dead bodies lying around.

new Tropical Depression east of Mindanao

We need your help and prayers as we brace for another Tropical Depression forming east of Southern Mindanao. The weather advisory above was issued by PAGASA last night. As I'm writing this, the weather in Davao City is already cloudy it's getting windy outside. This weather disturbance is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) within 24 to 36 hours. It's expected to be in the vicinity of Surigao, Bohol, and Palawan.
