In the wake of Tropical Storm Ondoy/Ketsana, netizens of the Philippines proved that technology can help save lives.
As the country prepares for yet another storm (this time, “super typhoon” Pepeng/Parma), these sites may prove to be useful in keeping everyone informed and updating the world on ongoing rescue, relief, and rehabilitation efforts.
