Typhoon Frank (international name Typhoon Fengshen) Death Count now expected to be over 1500.

The death toll from typhoon “Frank” has reached 505 and could increase further as hopes of finding some 287 persons still reported missing become dim.

That number does not include over 700 people missing from the sunken ferry, Princess of The Stars. The Philippine Coast Guard has begun to discuss opening the hull of the vessel. I’m not sure why that hasn’t already happened. It has been discussed since day one but here is more than a week later and it is still being discussed.

Perhaps the discover of the pesticides on board has prompted reopening this line of thought. I think part of it is the Philippines which to take care of their dead without assistance. I find that to be totally understandable.
