The iconic Empire State Building in New York City lit up Friday evening with the colors of the Philippine flag to raise awareness on the supertyphoon tragedy that struck the country a week ago.
The colored lights red, white, blue, and yellow, which represented the country's flag, will be up for the next two days beginning Friday, according to a report.
"Walking down 7th Avenue to the train station on a particularly stressful Friday, I looked up and saw the Empire State in the red, blue, yellow and white of the Philippines," said Miya David, a Filipino currently residing in the Big Apple taking her masters at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, in a message to InterAksyon.com. "It was the most beautiful I've seen from the landmark since I've been here."
"I've been touched by the concern of professors and classmates here in New York regarding the devastation brought by typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) on our country," David said.
