January 27, 2015—Severe weather continues to take a tough toll on life in the Philippines. Even Pope Francis’ January visit there had to be curtailed in the Tacloban area, as Tropical Storm Mekkhal, with torrential rains and winds of up to 80 miles an hour, approached. The pope was there to visit survivors of Super Typhoon Haiyan, which decimated the area in 2013.
