Send aid or relief to Typhoon Haiyan survivors





TYPHOON HAIYAN RIPS THROUGH CENTRAL PHILIPPINES
Typhoon Haiyan is a Category 5 storm, the strongest typhoon of 2013 and said to be the ?most powerful ever? to make landfall (with winds near 195-200 mph). Perspective: Superstorm Sandy was at 95mph when it hit New Jersey; Hurricane Katrina at 129mph when it hit land.



The victims need all the help they can get. Cities have been leveled, buildings made of concrete were destroyed by strong winds and storm surges. Communications have yet to be reestablished in most of the areas affected by the typhoon. The full picture left behind by Haiyan has yet to be established yet the devastation reported on television is already extensive. The government is bracing for large-scale relief operations. Virtually 1/3 of the country has been ravaged by this natural disaster. And we need help.

FOR THOSE IN THE PHILIPPINES


HOW TO FILE FOR MISSING PERSONS


I tried to be offline as much as possible when the calamity struck the country. I did not want to deal with the sadness nor do I still want to deal with it. I am torn about the event and the aftermath. I tried to keep mum about it, might have offended people, yet I am entitled to my opinion. But I am not heartless. I do what I can especially through work by advocating and sharing information on preparation and recovery. This blog post is one little way to circulate means on how to send relief or aid to Typhoon Haiyan survivors. Kindly spread further. Thank you.
