Typhoon Bopha/Pablo has hit the Islands of Mindanao first week of December but up to now, hundreds are still missing and hundreds were already found dead.
I was able to watch a TV interview of the survivors. One saw how his father died. It was very traumatic. He narrates that he wasn't able to help him cause he was also stuck in the mud while a tree fell on his fathers back. It was very tragic. :( Whats worse is some government officials were even taking advantage of it (I am sure not all of them are, there are still good ones I believe) .
Here are some of the pictures of what the typhoon left behind:
