Ferry Boat Sinks Off Philippines

Close to 230 people were confirmed dead and many remained missing after Typhoon Fengshen swept through the country.

The MV Princess of the Stars went down at about noon on Saturday, several kilometers off the coast of Sibuyan Island, after being battered by huge waves overnight when its engines failed, officials and survivors said.

But I have one question: why the ferry was allowed to leave from Manila with the typhoon about to hit the country.

Who made the decision?

Totally incredible!

Words are failing me…
