The typhoon struck the country's north Saturday, displacing more than 43,000 people in 11 provinces, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said.

    @bobcat, thank you for asking. He came home last Friday and he got to spend a few days with his parents in London. Right now he is loving getting hot showers and hot meals.He went right back to work today but the jet lag is a killer. I hate when they take down the jokes. I was lucky to see that one before I took off for lunch. Now I hope this posts.

    @ dazzle

    I really am happy for you that he is home safe. I know that has to be a grueling experience. Like I said before, that takes a special person and I have a lot of respect for his kind of person.
    I'm also glad you were able to solve the mystery.
