Typhoon Morakot Hits Taiwan

If you have been following the international news, you are aware that a typhoon slammed into Taiwan this past weekend.  Our sister school, Raey Guang Elementary is located in Pingtung Taiwan, and I have been trying to determine if they are near any of the destruction.

PingtungToday, I ran across a CNN International web article referencing a rescue helicopter crash in Pingtung County.   The heavy rains (39 inches) have created dangerous mudslides.

I have emailed the staff to inquire about their safety, however, I am fully aware that schools are likely closed and that everyone is focusing on the health and well-being of family and friends.

Please keep the people in Taiwan in your thoughts as they struggle to overcome this weather disaster — and in many cases deal with the loss of loved ones.
