The aftermath of one of the most powerful typhoons in S.E. Asian history raked a path through the Philippines this last weekend, leaveing widespread devistation, and desperate looting for food and water. The Philippines are accustomed to typhoons battering their islands, but this one, Haiyan(Yolanda), plowed the islands with winds of 195-235 m.p.h. winds, U.S. Naval Typhoon Comand sources revealed last Friday.  Looting seems to be centered on the aquisition of food, and water sources in this time between the storm, the resumption of some resemblance of normality in the hard hit areas, and the surrounding islands cut off from vital basic food deliveries. The U.S military is responding with necessity aid, but that is possibly a week away. Donations are being recieved.

I really feel for these people. They had virtually nothing to begin with in these shacks for homes and this storm has devastated the area. All those people killed. Also the way the islands are spread out makes it very difficult to deliver essential aid. Getting food, water and aid to people seems to be the first major task It's going to be a long task to try and restore their homes.

 

I guess all we can do is contribute to the charities out there.

Quoting wwww12345:

Looting warehouses for food and water to survive is ok with me.. However looting from other people is not ok.  I know a big rice warehouse was looted, lets hope that it remains that way.

 



100% in agreement.  It's like the black kid that stole the school bus to help people evacuate Katrina...hero, and okay with me.
