Reactions to super typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda that hits Philippines

Regarded as the strongest typhoon that ever hit the world, super typhoon Yolanda with international name Haiyan death tolls rises from 3 to 100 people as of this posting as per report of Business week.

Positive.

It was a disastrous calamity indeed but what lightens more the day after Yolanda moves away from Philippines area of responsibility is a praise coming from their site visitor named dudesk001 on CNN’s update on super typhoon Haiyan. From his comment, he praised the Filipino for being resilient despite any disaster.

dudesk001 [commented on CNN's post]: “Time to get to know the hardy Filipino people…unbelievably resilient, long-suffering, good-natured, uber friendly, loyal, ingenious, and a bunch of survivors.

At the end of the day, the Filipinos will just shake off the dirt from their clothes and thongs, and go about their business…and SMILE. They do not complain much, they will bear as long as they can.

Maybe this is why they were given the “privilege” of bearing the burden of the strongest typhoon ever recorded.” 

Negative.

On the other hand, there’s always an opposite to everything as they say. Facebook user named Jax Cote commented to an article posted on fbnws.com saying, “so this means the world is getting rid a whole wack of Phillipino’s about time God cleaned house!” . See screengrab below and details here.
