Another Disaster

Nature strikes again - this time in the Philipines. Some 1,800 people are still missing after the landslide in the village of Guinsaugon on Leyte island. It was reported that the mud covering the village is up to 10 metres (30 feet) deep.

Only a few survivors were pulled out from the mud and aid workers haven't found any more till today.

Extensive logging activity has been mentioned as the cause of the landslide. read the BBC report here.

Lets us all say a prayer for the victims of this disaster.

It's a difficult year for Philippines, first it's the stampede a while ago.. now the landslide.

My prayers with them, and damn those money sucking loggers.
