Philippines Floods 2011: Bodies Found Far Away From Ravaged Villages, Coastline

MANILA, Philippines Fishermen joined Philippine navy sailors, police and firefighters in an ever wider search for bodies from entire villages swept away in one of the country's worst flash floods. More bodies have washed ashore, pushing the death toll to more than 1,200, an official said Monday.

While more than 60,000 homeless from hundreds of flood-ravaged villages spent a miserable Christmas in jam-packed schools and gymnasiums, search teams retrieved an additional 150 bodies from the sea as far as 60 miles (100 kilometers) from worst-hit Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities, said Benito Ramos, head of the Office of Civil Defense.

3. I just emailed a link from Yahoo to a friend

 



And here is what the auto-titled email looked like:

"More bodies found far away from Philippine floods - Yahoo!"

This is when the auto-advertising is in poor taste.

4. Societal Collapse

 

Or that's what it would look like if it happened here.
