Nearly 900 missing in Philippines from Typhoon Bopha
Associated Press: Typhoon Bopha has devastated the Philippines where it left more than 600 dead. The number of people missing is listed at almost 900.
The number of missing jumped after nearly 300 fishermen were reported missing by family members and fishing companies who said they lost contact with the fishermen after they left for sea a few days before the typhoon hit last week.

Of course we will hear next to nothing on this story from the national media. Our world is crumbling around us right now and its our fucking fault.
