Typhoon Bopha raises concerns and death rates

Typhoon Bopha hit the Philippines on Tuesday, flooding roads and destroying homes.  The Civil Defense Office declared that the death toll has risen to 325 people.  There are still many missing.  The storm struck the Mindanao Island on Tuesday and continued along the southern area of the Philippines.  It struck a total of eight provinces in and is predicted to continue to the South China sea.  Thousands of homes, lives, and memories have been washed away due to the typhoon.  Unfortunately-just last year-another typhoon struck the southeast Asian country.  Typhoon Washi hit the country, killing more than 1,300 people in southern Philippines.
