In Angeles City on Luzon in the Philippines right now, MBDO President Col. Richard A. McMahon, Jr. reports only rain on Friday and no major effect where he is from Super Typhoon Haiyan.

He reports that “the central islands are collectively known as Visayas, V pronounced like B. That’s where the super typhoon hit. Recently, they were also hit big large earthquake. They said the super typhoon had more power than Hurricane Katrina. I was deployed to Katrina for 40 days by the Red Cross in 2005.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with the many, many people in the Philippines and elsewhere in the Pacific where Typhoon Haiyan is impacting.
