Yeah but cebu city have electricity already. So Typhoon have not much efect on pentax.
Not on Pentax maybe, that has to be the least of my concerns... if they're running production whilst international aid is required next door I'll be ashamed.

They are not spare much, an earthquake just last month and now this. VIDEO | Sinkhole forms in Lapulapu City in quake-hit Cebu, key provincial structures damaged - InterAksyon.com I am afraid we will be seeing much more killer storms in the near future.

A disaster for the Philippine's... and worse a tragedy for families who are bereaved....a terrible situation where housing....water....electricity....services...hospitals....schools.....are either destroyed or under great stress.

Foreign aid.....but also aid from Philippine expatriates' will pour into the country in effort to get the country back on it's feet as quickly as possible. Disaster relief and the associated expertise from trained specialists both from the Philippine's and foreign aid are the best individuals to provide the initial assistance needed now.

An important factor to help any country that has suffered a disaster of such magnitude is to help it get back to normal as soon as possible.

Normal means getting infrastructure repaired, essential services set up, business's to run in order to provide people and the country with financial wherewithal.... and allow people get back to a semblance of normalcy.... all the better for the Philippine's.

First a major quake then a major storm. Some areas are still in communications blackout - no lights no radio, everything. Thankfully it passed through the country in a single day; otherwise had it changed direction a little north (hitting Manila and surrounding provinces Laguna and Cavite - probably the top 3 most populated areas), we're talking 6-digit dead here, and I'm not kidding.

Some gusty winds that maxed out (during landfall) peaked close to 300kph (at least according to our local weather stations). Even here in the capital which wasn't directly affected, we still had 40-60kph winds, and heavy rain. There's so much grief over in the Visayan region right now, but good thing more and more international organizations and even the private sector are mobilizing to assess the damage and help out everyone in the affected areas.

What a disaster
Official counts not yet done, surely it's in the thousands, but hopefully not up to that number.
