Officials: Death Toll After Historic Philippines Typhoon Could Reach 10,000 … In One City Alone


I hope they’re wrong …

Fox News – “Authorities expect a ‘very high number of fatalities’ after one of the strongest typhoons on record devastated central Philippines, cutting communications and severely damaging an airport in one of the hardest-hit regions.

A senior regional police official and a city administrator in the typhoon-ravaged Tacloban city in the central Philippines say the death toll there could reach 10,000 people, according to the Associated Press.

Regional police chief Elmer Soria said he was briefed by Leyte provincial Gov. Dominic Petilla on Saturday and told there were about 10,000 deaths on the island, mostly by drowning and from collapsed buildings.

Tacloban city administrator Tecson Lim said that the death toll in the city alone ‘could go up to 10,000.’

Earlier, the Philippine Red Cross told Reuters that based on reports it estimated at least 1,200 were dead in Tacloban, which is located about 360 miles southeast of Manila, and 200 more in Samar Province.

Interior Secretary Max Roxas arrived in Tacloban Saturday and said it was too early to know exactly how many people had died following Typhoon Haiyan, which was heading toward Vietnam and expected to hit the country’s coast Sunday afternoon.

‘The rescue operation is ongoing. We expect a very high number of fatalities as well as injured,’ Roxas said. ‘All systems, all vestiges of modern living – communications, power water, all are down. Media is down, so there is no way to communicate with the people in a mass sort of way.'” Read more.

    Luke 21:7And they asked him, saying: Master, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when they shall begin to come to pass?
    10Then he said to them: Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
    11And there shall be great earthquakes in divers places, and pestilences, and famines, and terrors from heaven; and there shall be great signs.
    20And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed about with an army; then know that the desolation thereof is at hand.

    “There will be powerful earthquakes in Russia and China soon and they will take place one after the other.

    Weather extremes and sudden changes in temperatures from cold to very hot will be seen. The seasons will no longer be seen in the way in which they were in the past.

    Floods and sea storms will be seen in parts of the world, which have never experienced them up to now. In the countries, which pass wicked laws against God, earthquakes will rattle their lands and for those who know Me, they will know why they are taking place.”
