Last week Typhoon Ketsana also known as Typhoon Ondoy devastated the Philippines, pouring over a month’s worth of rain into the country in a matter of hours. At one point 80% of Manila, the country’s capital was submerged under water. Reports say that the death toll is steadily rising above 250 victims with well over half a million people displaced from their homes due to flooding. Our hearts go out to them.
