What a horrible disaster.

My heart goes out to all those people. Who would have thought a few days ago that the coming rains woulr destroy so many lives.

My heart goes out to all the people out there. The weather is very extreme, While Japan having heavy rains, North America have been suffering from the extreme heat wave.

Very sorry to hear that. Sad indeed. I get a sick feeling this number might go up, looking at the way news has been revised and updated. Strongly hope I’m wrong. Stay safe y’all out there.

Adding this to the still homeless people in Kumamoto, japan needs to stop thinking so much about buying high tech weapons and more on training the army for civil disasters.

I have been watching videos of our brave soldiers helping. Thanks guys.

Oh dear what a mess! I think that the death toll will rise when the water leaves start to drop.
