Cargo Vessel runs Aground in Dumaguete, Philippines.
My wife comes from Sibulan, Negros Oriental in Philiipines, not for from the city of Dumaguete. I have been to the city many times and consider it my "home away from home". My wife's family still lives there, as do many of our friends.
Yesterday, December, 17th a ".....cargo vessel anchored of off Dumaguete ran aground and capsized after it was battered by big waves spawned by Tropical Storm Sendong about 4 a.m., the Philippine Coast Guard said." Thankfully, all on board were rescued.
Hundreds of people died in Philippines.
Thank God, all of my wife's family is safe, though there was some property damage.
