Rescue PH

(From ANC 24/7)

Northern and Central Luzon will continue to experience rains today but less than what parts of the country have been experiencing for the past days.
According to weather bureau PAGASA, Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Ilocos and the Cordillera will experience monsoon rains which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.
This as Tropical Storm Maring eased its hold on the southwest monsoon. Maring, known for international name “Trami”, is now being felt in northern Taiwan.
PAGASA has also spotted a new low pressure area, east of Northern Luzon though it is still outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility.
The LPA could accelerate by the weekend. 

I think it's not new to our ears that Philippines is often visited by typhoons. It was just last year when Typhoon Bopha aka Bagyong Pablo brought great impact to the country. Unfortunately, the country is now facing the same catastrophe. It has been raining nonstop for quite a few days now and the destruction brought by Bagyong Maring are visible in the pictures. they say that this is the worst so far. Though the impacted areas are in the northern part of the country and we live in the southern part, it still breaks my heart to see all these pictures.

I decided to post this hoping that you can spare some of your time to pray for the Philippines. I just really wanna help in my own little way. If you are interested, here's a list on how to help the victims of the flooding.
