29/09/2009: United States Senator Akaka’s Statement on Typhoon Ondoy

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka issued the following statement on 28 September 2009:

“By now, most of us have seen the images of destruction and human suffering caused by Tropical Storm Ketsana in the Philippines.  Survivors are now struggling to find clean drinking water, food, medicine, and shelter.  In Hawaii, we know all too well the damage tropical cyclones can cause.  As we have in the past, we stand ready to help our friends in the Philippines.  I encourage everyone in our community to do what they can to help those suffering from this terrible disaster.”
