Americans Aren’t the Only Ones Evacuating…

As it turns out, they’re evacuating in the Philippines as well. Well, some are. Others are hurriedly trying to harvest their crops amid a rice shortage, before the crops get destroyed by Typhoon Mangkhut.  The Guardian reports that the typhoon right now has maximum sustained winds of 125mph, and approximately 10,000,000 people are in its path. Richard Gordon, chairman of the Philippine Red Cross, stated, We’re worried for the 10 million people in the Philippines living in the path of this destructive storm, including those who have been displaced several times due to the monsoon rains last July and August.” Very, very sad.
