    Please help - Typhoon / Flood Relief in Philippines

    BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Philippines battles flood chaos

    If any of you are able to, please consider making a donation to the Philippine Red Cross to aid in the relief efforts for flood victims from the recent typhoon.

    For ways to donate, please visit the Philippine Red Cross at Philippine National Red Cross - Ways To Donate

    The equivalent of a whole month's rain fell in six hours in Manila last Saturday. Waters in some areas rose up to 3 storeys high. Many were left homeless, people died and many are still missing.

    Please do consider helping in any way you can. Thank you.

    The rainfall brought by typhoon ONDOY to Metro Manila and nearby areas in a span of six hours on Saturday was the most in recorded history, surpassing the previous record for the metropolis in 1967.

    Hurricane Katrina dumped over an inch of rainfall in Louisiana for 3 hours and another 0.5 inches per hour over the next 5 hours on August 29, 2005. Ondoy dumped an average of 2.24 inches per hour for six hours... and is still going.

    Thanks, Lavi...I've sent you a PM regarding details of where you can send directly your donations.

    Also if any of you know suppliers of diapers or milk for babies and children where I can get at wholesale price, pls PM me. I would appreciate since there is really a lack of these items. I guarantee that the purchase will just be for sending to the Philippines...I have a 6 month old baby and cannot imagine - I refuse to imagine - being in that situation.
