(Newser) – The devastation from Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines is becoming clearer: The Red Cross now estimates that 1,000 were killed in the coastal city of Tacloban alone, and another 200 in Samar province, reports CNN. The first images from the region show widespread damage. The typhoon, which might end up being the most powerful such storm in history, is now on its way to Vietnam.

Luke 21 25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
