Franz - Donation made. I was thinking about you last week (as I'm sure many of us were) as the impending storm was about to hit your country. How is your situation?

i'm fine steve, thank you for the concern. nothing happened to me or anyone i love. i do have a couple friends down in visayas where the damage has been dealt the most. i have not heard from them since the power is still out over there among other things. I am still waiting for their replies if they mange to get online sometime soon. I'll let you guys know if i reach them.

let's all pool together and help the people that got hurt and have lost their homes and loved ones.

Hi Franz,

We made a donation as well just now. Thanks for the link. That storm looked massive on the satellite.

it's ginormous mark, it's over a 1000 kilometers wide and much much stronger than hurricane katrina!

it's such a sad sad time. i'm just trying to get people to help.

thank you very much!

Franz, thank you for the donation link. I just heard on the news that our Canadian Forces Disaster relief team is en route, they specialize in their ability to make drinking water out of water that would otherwise be unsafe, among other things they do.

I can't imagine what you must be going through, be safe during the hard days to come.

thank you sailor, lots of folks from all over the world have been coming to help out but there are still lots of islands here in my country that haven't recieved any help at all. most of the help is going to the major provinces and the smaller islands and smaller towns are being ignored. any help is welcome!

i'm not having any trouble on my side so there's nothing to worry about. i'm concentrating on helping out the ones in need.

Franz - Terrible disaster, but I'm glad you and your family are OK. Donation made and I hope there is a tremendous level of support worldwide.
