Super Typhoon

Posted by Dave Overton on November 9, 2013

The super typhoon didn’t directly hit Cebu City, instead its eye passed over the North of Cebu island. While I am thankful for it not hitting us directly, my heart goes out to those that were affected: many are without shelter in Cebu City, those in the North of Cebu are worse, the earthquake victims in Bohol haven’t had shelter since Oct 15 - only tents, and the islands of Leyte and Samar who were the first landfall points for the storm saw the massive, unrestrained force of a category 5 storm. There isn’t a lot of information at the moment as power and telco lines are down and/or overwhelmed. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers and directly donate to relief organizations. On a side note: Glory Reborn was a small shelter yesterday with many families in the neighborhood coming in for safety as the storm hit. We will continue to assist those in surrounding communities and islands as we recover from the series of natural disasters, if you feel inclined to help us, you can donate at http://gloryreborn.org
