Update on Typhoon Haiyuan impact in Philippines – Nov 2013

Today, I sent to church  two big bags of clothes I no longer need, for our Youth Mission Trippers to bring to the Philippines at the end of the month. It is such a paltry act in the face of the tremendous needs in the Philippines. I/we  should do more including praying for those impacted and giving as the Lord impresses us to do so.

From Asoociated Press

Authorities expect a “very high number of fatalities” after one of the strongest typhoons on record devastated the central Philippines, cutting communications and severely damaging an airport in one of the hardest-hit regions.

A senior regional police official and a city administrator in the typhoon-ravaged city of Tacloban in the central Philippines said early Sunday that the death toll there could reach 10,000 people, according to the Associated Press.

Regional police chief Elmer Soria said he was briefed by Leyte provincial Gov. Dominic Petilla on Saturday and told there were about 10,000 deaths on the island, mostly by drowning and from collapsed buildings.

Earlier, the Philippine Red Cross told Reuters that based on reports it estimated at least 1,200 were dead in Tacloban, which is located about 360 miles southeast of Manila, and 200 more in Samar Province.

May the Lord’s grace, mercy and salvation be on the Filipino people.

    Thank you for the prayers. :) I just want to clarify my previous comment. There was some unclear reports before that there was 10,000 fatalities, but the truth is there were only more that 3,000. Let’s continually pray for the survivors. God bless you. :)

      Thank you krissummer, for clarifying. At that point 10,000 was supposed to be the best estimate. Thank God a much lower number were killed. Praying that your government will take this opportunity to rebuild infrastructure which will be strong enough to withstand future typhoons.

    Thank you so much for helping us Filipinos. Although I am not one of the victims, but I really appreciate all the prayers and other kinds of help for us. Thank you so much.

    And also, for the latest update, there has been 10,000 estimated fatalities in Leyte alone. Please pray that we will be able to reach everybody just in time. There were more than a million people that has been affected by the said calamities. Right now we need your prayers.

    May God will bless you more.
