Flooding in Luzon

#1 is on the island of Luzon. Right now there is flooding going on. The news says that some of the people are evacuating their homes. From what I understand, this isn't an all that rare occurrence.

Just in case you were wondering, here is what things look like right now.

I'm not all that well-versed on my Philippines geography. That class just wasn't offered in my high school (darned budget cuts--even back then), but I tried. This is roughly how things stand. #1 is in Masinloc. Iba is where she sends her weekly emails from and Olongapo is where the mission home is. On the left is the current map of the flooding in Luzon and on the right is just a map of the towns and villages in her mission.

Iba and Olongapo have had some pretty hefty rainfall in the last 24 hours. I don't know about Masinloc, but I guess we'll know within the week.

I will send prayers for her safety. It is hard to have a missionary in areas of concern. When our daughter was in Venezuela they had political upheaval and they couldn't leave their apartments on certain days. From being the mission nurse in Washington I can tell you that Heavenly Father watches over His missionaries.
Prayers and blessings!
