    Philippines hit hard by late season storm


    Updated: Dec 18, 2011 4:44 AM (that's probably hawaii time, it's from hawaii paper).

    Philippine storm toll exceeds 650; 900 missing

    Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin and top military officials flew to Cagayan de Oro and Iligan to help oversee search-and-rescue efforts and deal with about 45,000 displaced villagers. Among the items urgently needed are coffins and body bags, said Benito Ramos, who heads the government's disaster-response agency.

    Prayers for those in the Philippines struggling with this and those that have family members located there.

    Nothing to see here, move along...
    Lots of prayers...my SIL's brothers' wives are Philipine, and they have a lot of family over there. A ton, ton, ton of prayers for the folks who've lost their lives, and those still missing, and those with family in the danger zone.
