Typhoon in the Philippines

The typhoon in the Philippines was very bad. It destroyed most of the south region of the country. There was a death toll of over 10,000 people. It was very sad and devastating. Since Philippines is my hometown, I personally would like to go home and help some people. The damage that the typhoon did was terrible. I wish I could be there to help people in times like this.
