The massive typhoon that slammed the Philippines hits home for one mid-Missourian. Juvy DeShon is a native of the Philippines, and still has family there. She says the eye of Typhoon Haiyan hit very close to her former home.
“I normally don’t get scared or concerned when there’s a typhoon going on close to our area. But this time, this one really hit me,” says DeShon.
DeShon says the worst part is the waiting, because communications to the Philippines are difficult.
