    This sounds like one hell of a typhoon!! I do hope the international community can come to the aid of all of these suffering people down in the Philippines ASAP !

    Lack of preparation, poor housing in vulnerable areas, signs of deforestation due to overpopulation. It is not about the strength of the typhoon. It is about the conditions these people live in.

    Where's Manny and his millions to lend a hand to his people he's supposed to be representing ?

    I've been to Manilla many times on business, one part you'll have a dealership selling new cars and a block and a half later shanty town with no electricity and clean running water . Like Avi said it poorly prepared to handle these typhoons.

    According to the news, the govt had prepared them for the typhoon a week before. Unfortunately, those who were affected were in the areas based from the geohazard map are prone to landslides, with or with illegal logging or mining. Another thing is that the flashfloods were caused by overflowing rivers in the mountains and the some twisters that the residents saw.
