Nature's Wrath

Dear insansapinas,

PArang Ondoy, ang malalaking baha ay nararansan sa ibang bahagi ng mundo. Nature's wrath!


Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was meeting Tuesday morning with his emergency.
Cabinet as flooding in two northeastern states killed at least 40 people and left more than 100,000 homeless, the Agencia Brasil state news agency and civil defense officials reported.


Nearly 200 people have died and more than 120 are missing from heavy rains and floods ravaging 10 southern China provinces, the government news agency said Tuesday.

About 2.3 million residents have been evacuated and 195,000 houses have collapsed, while 568,000 others have been damaged, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.


At least 1,000 people had to leave their homes and spend the night in schools or other temporary shelters, and some 175,000 houses were estimated to have been left without electricity.

Some reportedly sought shelter on the roofs of their homes, while helicopters were brought in to rescue people.

Rescue teams had to moved 436 inmates from a prison in Draguignan after two floors flooded.

The force of the water swept empty cars and other vehicles down streets in Draguignan.

diko makita video.
tsk tsk tsk whats happening to the world?
dati rati nung araw wala naman tayong masyadong naririnig o nababalitaang ganito,
just because now we can easily see whats happening in the world in a matter of seconds or minute because of the new technology or its really worst that before?
nakakatakot din minsan pero alam naman nating pasama na ng pasama ang mundo at galit na ang inang kalikasan.
