MORE DEVASTATION AHEAD. Another typhoon rated as a heavy rainmaker with approximately the same path is expected in 3-4 days. In the Philippines, damage assessments continue to reveal catastrophic losses. Survivors are in desperate need of clean drinking water and food. Survivors temporarily cut off from aid, and from their families in the Philippines as well as in other countries (e.g., 3 million have relatives in the USA).
