Super Typhoon “Haiyan” May Cause Thousands of Deaths in the Philippines

The central region of the Philippines has been attacked by super typhoon “Haiyan” for days. This typhoon is considered the strongest typhoon that the Philippines has encountered in history and as of the 10th, it has caused 151 deaths though local authorities reckon the number of deaths may continue to rise. However, according to the estimates by the Red Cross of the Philippines, when super typhoon “Haiyan” hit, more than 1,000 people died in the coastal city Tacloban and, in another severely afflicted area Samar, there were also at least more than 200 deaths. According to Peng Meiyu, General Secretary of the Red Cross of the Philippines, 1,000 deaths is only an “approximate figure”. From ChinaNews.

A natural disaster! I pray for the disaster-stricken people! Hope Aquino can stop laughing.

May the deceased rest in peace…

正义之聲 [网易广东省中山市网友]:

What people are doing, God is watching. They have committed to many wicked deeds, and God can tolerate it no longer. Also, many regions in out country are still in difficulties, I hope [the government] won’t take our taxpayers’ money and donate it to those Philippine dogs.

网易辽宁省盘锦市手机网友 ip:221.202.*.*: (responding to above)

I agree.

哎哟嗷喂 [网易广东省深圳市网友]:

Can people stop being so extreme, OK? The deceased are all ordinary common people. Everyone of them was a living life~~~

The Philippines, a dog-like country.

网易福建省手机网友 ip:58.22.*.*:

Sigh! No matter what, it’s a natural disaster! It’s too horrible to look at! The typhoon was so terrible, over 10, with winds of several hundred kilometers per hour!

网易山东省潍坊市网友 ip:112.243.*.*:

Good timing, praise!

芳華绝代 [网易福建省厦门市网友]:

Good, very good.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐广东省广州市网友]:

We hereby show our greatest sympathy to the Philippines for the natural disaster they have suffered. We will promote humanitarian spirit: organize the Filipinos in China to raise money, and then donate it to the Philippines in the name of China! Those who agree, please repost/forward!

Does this count as karma???

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐辽宁省沈阳市网友]:

Don’t be like this, have some compassion. Those who perished are all ordinary common people.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐网友]:

When facing natural disasters, humans are very fragile. This isn’t karma. People are dead. Have a little decency.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐江苏省南京市网友]:

It should be karma, but no matter what, may the deceased rest in peace.

曹孟徳的春天 [搜狐广东省阳江市网友]:

Are you still human beings or not! Over ten thousand people are dead! Those who died are people, not pigs. People are dead and you’re still laughing at other people’s misfortunes. You don’t deserve to be Chinese. Chinese people have been hailed as a land of etiquette and manners since ancient times and we’re always talking about how great our people are in this or that way, but I guess we’re all idiots making jokes [proving ourselves wrong]. The people of the Philippines are innocent and you should treat the matter separately [politics from people]. Although we can’t donate, we still shouldn’t be laughing at their misfortune! Is this the kind of talk the sons and daughters of great China should be saying? it’s not me being self-righteous, we can’t let the Americans look down upon us, and we can’t let the Japanese look down upon us even more. We mustn’t let others look down upon Chinese people.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐湖北省武汉市网友]:

Oppose China providing help to the Philippines. If you are Chinese, ding this up! [1,046 upvotes during the time of translation]

The earthquake in Japan, the typhoon in the Philippines. It’s good that they have happened, and happened at the right times.

逍遥剑客0319 [搜狐湖南省网友]:

Ha ha ha! So happy! Why couldn’t it have blown Aquino the bastard to death. It would’ve been even better! … Ha ha ha!

浅末年华55966281 [搜狐四川省网友]:

Oh, I see, not important. I pray we won’t do the same stupid thing we did in 2011 after the tsunami hit Japan, when China donated 20,000 tons of oil and 20,000 tons of diesel for free.
