I read some of the news today and it looks like the deaths are 27 so far.

It will take awhile to know as many areas are still without phones.

They did a good job of making sure everyone evacuated this time.

I was thinking about this the other day how lucky we are to have days notice that a Typhoon is on the way and we can prepare for it.

Imagine 50 to 100 years or so ago they had no warning at all, and only knew when it happened.

Not sure how long to get the roof fixed, maybe about a week or two, My friend Dodong will be doing it again and start tomorrow after he is finished hauling in the fish.

He greets the fishermen every morning and carts all of their catches over to the store where the fishermen get paid after everything is sorted and weighed.

They all give him fish for his help, and it keeps him in food, and also has more to sell so he can buy rice.

Pretty good deal for him as he makes more in a few hours than he use to make for all day as a laborer.
