Typhoon Bopha: Death Toll Tops 200 In Philippines; Scores Missing In Worst-Hit Areas (VIDEO)
NEW BATAAN, Philippines — The death toll from a powerful typhoon in the southern Philippines climbed to more than 200 people Wednesday and officials feared many more bodies could be found as rescuers reach hard-hit areas that had been isolated by landslides, floods and downed communications.

At least 151 people have died in the worst-hit province of Compostela Valley since Typhoon Bopha began lashing the region early Tuesday, including 66 villagers and soldiers who perished in a flash flood that swamped two emergency shelters and a military camp in New Bataan town, provincial spokeswoman Fe Maestre told The Associated Press.

About 80 people survived the deluge in New Bataan with injuries, but an unspecified number of villagers remain missing. On Wednesday, the farming town of 45,000 people was a muddy wasteland of collapsed houses and columns of coconut and banana trees felled by Bopha's ferocious winds.

Jess Louis. Sure glad I don't live their. I can't even imagine and a emergency shelter where those thought they would be safe also. Thats so sad. They are in my prayers tonight.

I find it strangly appauling how many people on this site are so enthralled when its hiting the States but when its somebody else or does not effect them they couldn't give too shits.

Proof is how many hits this thread gets. More proof of why so many people think American's are selfish and whiney. Only exception being is the OP here.

Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. the hardest hit places hit very poor communities. Now the care giving and rebuilding starts from the rest of us who were spared this time. I hope this is the last typhoon to hit for the year. The typhoon paths the past 2 years have ravaged areas which do not usually get hit that is why they are ill prepared. Please keep the prayers going.

The houses there are made of light materials and those who died were caught by flash floods.

Our friggin politicians and congressmen have the power of the budget to help these areas but they are just helping their own pockets. Some are even flying to the USA to watch Pacquiao's fight, talk about screwed up priorities.

For those wanting to send financial aid, food, and clothing to the hardest hit areas (Particularly Baganga)please contact me at mindanaoproject@live.com for more information. Donations can also be made immediately to the same address via Paypal.

I am in the process of setting up a donation page through Facebook which will provide details on where and how the funds raised will be spent. The Mindanao Project is based in Davao City and has been assisting the people here in Mindanao through work and livelihood programs. In addition we also have a feeding and outreach program for the Lumad street children here in Davao. Here is a link to this fundraising page. [link to fundrazr.com (secure)] Donations can be made here until the new page is developed and if you would please indicate that the funds are to be used for the Baganga Relief effort. Donations can be made anonymously. Thank you and God Bless.

sigh! I know what you mean, kapatid. That's why we as a people really have to rise above our crummy politics. If you are from manila, there will be a relief drive in UP this week. We can bring,pack and distribute relief goods. It's short term help but every little bit counts.

I am in Davao City and if your family was here they should be fine. No casualties reported and the city escaped with just some gusty winds less than 40mph and some rain. There were a few trees and scattered power outages, but nothing significant in the way of damage. It was business as usual here today.

Japan isn't a Christian country but it got devastated by tsunami and earthquake.

Going to the extreme, the dinosaurs was not introduced to Christianity, should we also credit that to their extinction?
