Philippines Flood Donations Appeal
PKTan: Do you know you can help simply by talking about this matter? Blogging, Twittering, Facebook, emailing etc are great tools to spread the word; you can help us raise awareness of the severity of typhoon Ondoy.
More than a month’s worth of rain fell in just 12 hours yesterday as Tropical Storm Ketsana slammed ashore in the Philippines triggering the worst flooding in decades in the capital Manila and nearby provinces.
Philippines President Gloria Arroyo appealed for donations and called for calm.
“I am calling on our countrymen, especially residents of metro Manila and other provinces in the path of the typhoon, to please stay calm, follow the instructions of local officials and civil defence authorities,” she said in a TV message on Saturday.
The weather has cleared up, but many areas are still underwater, particularly in the east of the capital. Thirty-five provinces and cities, including the capital, have been placed under a state of emergency.
