help for the typhoon victims in the Philippines



The Philippines was struck with heavy rains yesterday because of Typhoon Ondoy with International name Ketsana. Because the volume of rainfall that poured down for 6 hours was a month's worth of the usual Philippine rain, the effect was disastrous. Marikina and other neighboring cities was caught unaware when flood water already reached the rooftops of bungalow houses by 1pm. As of this writing, after 31 hours, there are still people on top of their rooftops waiting to be rescued. To all those who wish to donate, please visit the Philippine National Red Cross website.
