Tragic devastation.

Pray for the victims...

Just remember "I cried because I had no shoes until I saw a man with no feet".

Tacloban got wiped out. Surrounding Cebu province area has power but no water coz main supply got knocked out. Plenty of bottled water in the province stores but they have no money to buy so am sending pesos there for families to buy the water, rice, fish, charcoal, etc..

Was there just not enough high ground and shelter? Because there was plenty of notice it was coming. Could people just not find somewhere safe?

One more pic I found on Fox News' website that helps show the power of the storm:

CBS devoted over 10 minutes to this story this evening. At least it's getting the attention it deserves, tho' I'd surely wish there was no need for the attention at all. (I know, disasters will regularly happen, my wish is only that, a fantasy.)

Reports indicate the U.S. has sent the USS George Washington aircraft carrier (probably the entire task force, I would think) to support relief efforts in the Philippines.

I saw a comment somewhere that the carrier could produce substantial amounts of drinking water (above the crew's needs) -- anyone have a figure on that?
