Typhoon Haiyan Devastates the Philippines

(Image from NBC News)

Yesterday Typhoon Bopha devastated much of the Philippines.  Nearly all the news agencies are speculating the death toll may be as high as 10,000.  We probably won't know the true scale of this disaster for several days, or even weeks.

Even though I work in emergency management, I still have trouble comprehending the magnitude of disasters such as this.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Philippine people as they recover and rebuild.
