This hits particularly close to home. A web assistant who is doing some work for me,, who is Filipina, lost everything to Typhoon Sendong over the weekend. She and her family barely made it out of their home alive before having everything inside it destroyed by flood waters. The destruction is horrific. They’re estimating the death count to top 1000 by tonight, and still hundreds are missing. I’ll be posting links for relief agencies and assistance programs shortly.
