Us vs Typhoon Pepeng

Typhoon Pepeng/Parma has really devastated Northern Luzon, and has been pouring a huge amount of rain for about a week now.

Barangay Balili, La Trinidad, Benguet
Here are some tweets from @mlq3 via Danny Durante:
Rainfall 8am yesterday to 8am today is 685 mm., more than Ondoy in Manila.
Ave rainfall in baguio october past 30 yrs only 461mm, but within 24 hours has reachd 685mm already.
(and again, it's been raining there for a week already...)
and via @PlanetEarth101:
NDCC said people affected by Pepeng has reached over 1million people with nearly 40,000 inside 162 evacuation centers

The mountainous topography of Northern Luzon means they're very prone to landslides, and at the same time, the heavy rains has already brought floods to the provinces

Typhoon Pepeng may not have affected Manila as badly as the tropical storm Ondoy did, but I hope people still pour in as much help this time as they did last week for Ondoy victims.

Let's donating as much as we can:
