Update on Reming

(8th UPDATE) ‘Reming’ ravages AlbayHeavy rain from supertyphoon Reming (international codename Durian) caused mudslides that smothered dozens of villages in Albay province Friday, killing 388 according to the Red Cross.The rain mixed with volcanic ash on the slopes of the Mayon volcano, located some 350 kilometers (217 miles) southeast of Manila, creating a thick brown sludge that swept down the mountainside, local authorities said.

The mudflow struck shortly after midnight, burying everything in its path and reaching the rooftops of the region’s bamboo houses.

Let us pray for our brothers and sisters in Bicol. And let’s hope that the numbers won’t rise as Reming continues to traverse across southern luzon.
