Noted with thanks Carrie. I didn't hear anything yet, and pray that they were not hit again, they are still trying to recover from the last typhoon.

They're certainly having more than their fair share of suffering to put up with. . .

I hope the people don't forget the animals as they're always forgotten in disasters. Thx Carrie

Hagupit has come ashore and though it is expected to be less devastating than Haiyan, it is still a very fierce typhoon. Those poor people in the Philippines were still recuperating and rebuilding after Haiyan and now they have to deal with another similar disaster. My heart goes out to them.

Please look up - they have a petition which I have just signed which they are going to give to the meeting at Lima to say they will not put up with this any more - they cannot live like this having their lives destroyed by typhoons.
