Typhoon creates health crisis in the Philippines

Posted: November 12, 2013 in Current Event

The Red Cross says it has ordered 10,000 body bags in preparation for the number of bodies it believes it will have to retrieve. The official death toll, currently in the hundreds, is likely to grow quickly as rescue crews are better able to assess the situation. 4.2 million people who have been affected by the storm, many of them injured, thirsty or hungry. Even know its a storm and a big storm like this happens almost every year. Its still devasting to here that people have to suffer and die like this. My prayers go out to the people who lost someone and the people who are struggling to live there life.
