I would like to address a couple of issues.

Philippines- Typhoon Yolanda (I don't remember the other name for it) has lashed through the Philippines causing lots of damage. It's one of the strongest typhoons this year. I would go through more detail but then I would be repeating every other thread about it so just check out this link (http://www.news.com.au/world/typhoon-haiyan-at-least-three-dead-as-philippines-pummeled-by-super-tyhoon/story-fndir2ev-1226756096237) and this link (http://www.rappler.com/nation/special-coverage/weather-alert/43229-20131108-yolanda-5pm-update) for lots more info. Stay strong Filipinos, my heart goes out to every single one of you <3

New South Wales (Australia)- Now, not many people will know about this but there is a bushfire going through New South Wales (Australia) which is the state next to my state so I'm safe, just thought I'd let you know so people don't start worrying about me. I am not 100% sure if it's still going but on October 25th, 2013 it had been going for 9 days. It has been going in the Blue Mountains and there was 57 bushfires and only 30(?) of them had been contained. I won't go on too much about this one so just check out this link (http://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/a/19493045/nsw-bushfires-residents-warned-not-to-become-complacent-as-warnings-downgraded/) and if that doesn't work then I can just copy+paste what it says. Stay Strong <3

I would post more info but I'd rather give a website with somewhat correct information then my probably-not-right-at-all information:sweatdrop:

Bushfire:a fire in scrub or a forest, especially one that spreads rapidly.

Quick Update: The bushfire is STILL going. October 25th was it's 9th day, I think you can do the maths.

I am a Filipino, My town here is luckily unscathed by the typhoon "Yolanda".
I pray for the other parts of the Philippines and it's people be safe.

--Updated--

Well, the Typhoon is now going out of the Philippines, And I hope nothing come like that here again!

Typhoon left, 1200 ppl dead (According to Morphieus but even he isn't sure) and the fire is STILL going.:sweatdrop: now how many of you have heard of Ash Wednesday or Black Saturday? They were the worst bushfires in Australia EVER. They killed hundreds-thousands of people. My dad was a firefighter at Black Saturday, nearly didn't return:nope:
