Pray for the Philippines

Saturday, November 9, 2013
I got an email from one of my blogger friends from Canada requesting an update on what's going on since it's all over the news that a deadly storm hit the Philippines.


Super typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) is one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded slammed into the Philippines. The strength of Haiyan remains equal to that of a powerful Category 4 hurricane. It made its landfall in the Visayan region in Central Philippines. The super typhoon carries a maximum wind speeds of 195 miles per hour with gusts up to 235 mph. For comparison, an airplane takes off at speeds in the range of 160 mph. 

Philippines' second largest city, Cebu, is still trying to recover from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit them last month. 

My family and I are okay. We're based in Metro Manila which is part of Luzon.

Please remember the Philippines in prayer.

Typhoon Haiyan is now heading to Vietnam.
