|Gulf Coast area of Mississippi eight years after Katrina.|
This blog has been inwardly focused for the last several months and especially the last two weeks. I had heard of a huge typhoon bearing down on the Philippines. It was not until last evening that the extent of the calamity really had my attention. According to everything I read Typhoon Haiyan was 3X wider than Katrina and about 1/3 wider than Sandy. The Gulf Coast of the US is still working to recover after 8 years as well at the Eastern Seaboard after one year. Prayers are sent for all the peoples of the areas damaged by this horrific natural disaster.
