CWN Editor's Note: Devoting its most prominent front-page coverage on December 16 to Typhoon Rai (also known as Typhoon Odette), the Vatican newspaper reported that the storm “is preceded by a disordered human column, it is followed by the interruption of every basic service, it is accompanied by the collapse of every anti-Covid measure. . . . The State that was emerging from a very rigid lockdown was looking for a gradual return to normality. Now the population flees, with the deep wave of mud up to the chest.”
