Skip to comments.Pictures: Typhoon Bopha Takes Detour — Palau Is Spared
Posted on 12/02/2012 9:43:53 PM PST by jwsea55
In what seems a miracle of mercy, Palau has been spared the full wrath of Typhoon Bopha. While it wailed and howled and sent piercing noises through the trees and outside of our windows, at the very last minute the Typhoon turned west and its path jogged south of Palau. Early reports have the Typhoon passing more than 50 miles south of Koror, the nations city-centre. Surprisingly despite its thunderous whistle, there was very little rain.
It is early morning here in Palau and as of yet, it has been difficult to communicate within Palau because the phone lines are down. The power is also out. Third hand reports tell us that the sea has washed into the shoreline on the east side of Babeldoab and Kayangel. Many houses on the northeastern coast of Palaus largest island of Babeldoab have been destroyed completely, but at least two remain. No reports yet from the islands of Anguar and Peleliu. Damage assessment is ongoing.

I was praying for these people then I read where they voted with Israel at the UN over the Palestine issue. I do not know if that is a connection but it shows the mercy of God regardless.
Very happy news. Thank God.
Next, the Philippines and, of course, our Country and the Middle East.
