We have sat up a new board there we hope we can exchange ideas and information on disasters and other things related to disasters.
You find the board here Philippines Disaster Volunteer forum
We hope that you join us there and that we can build up a community there that can assist and inform both us and the locals about disasters.
This board is much better then our Google + group that is now discontinued and all reports and other information will be to find in our board.
