With 10,000 now believed dead, yet another typhoon bears down on devastated Philippines

The typhoon devastation of the Philippines is far worse than all of us originally thought due to the fact that the infrastructure is so devastated, virtually all communications are down. Reports are now surfacing that 10,000 people may be dead from Typhoon Haiyan, and now another typhoon named “Zoraida” is following nearly the same path as the first superstorm.
As the photos below show, many regions of the Philippines have been utterly wrecked, almost beyond recognition. According to reports across the web, looting is rampant as people desperately attempt to acquire food and water for survival. Trucks carrying emergency supplies are being raided and ransacked by desperate citizens. The luckier citizens merely have to stand in line for many hours to receive small amounts of food or water. “Public latrines” are being used for basic personal hygiene… and no, they don’t have doors or privacy. You squat and do your business, then the next person follows.
Typhoon Haiyan, it turns out, blasted some regions of the Philippines almost back to the 19th century. It is a devastating reminder of the fragility of society and how quickly everything we’ve come to depend on can be wiped away in a matter of hours.
To help aid those victims of the typhoon, Natural News donated $10,000 to the Tzu Chi Foundation, which uses that money to buy and deliver emergency supplies directly to victims of the hurricane. If you would like to join us in making a donation, visit www.us.tzuchi.org
