More than a week after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, the number of dead has reached 3,631, while the injured tally has reached 12,487.
CNN reports there are 1,140 people missing, about 2 million are displaced from their homes and 400,000 are living in evacuation centers.
Some people are claiming this horrendous natural disaster was actually predicted in 2009 by self-proclaimed "prophet" Cindy Jacobs.
A video (below) of Jacobs making her prediction about the Philippines on Pat Robertson's 700 Club broadcast has gone viral on the web, reports The Christian Post.
Popular VideoThis young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.
Jacobs' 2009 prediction was supposed to span "the next two years," which would mean until 2011.
"I want you to pray. The next two years, the Lord is showing me, are going to be extremely significant for the Philippines," said Jacobs. "Either it's going to go on to greatness, it's going to be that transformed nation, or, I see that there's going to be some troubled times."
Jacobs then predicts extreme wealth for the tiny country.
"This is a time that God is going to pull down the spirit of corruption, and God is going to release the spirit of truth and righteousness into this nation, because righteousness exalts a nation," claimed Jacobs. "The Lord has given many promises for the Philippines. I mean, the Philippines is going to be one of the wealthiest nations on the earth."
In response, Next Media Animation (NMA), a Taiwanese animation news company has recently created a parody of Jacobs' prediction (video below).

"Granted, the tragic events surrounding the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan, which has left more than 2200 people dead, have understandably prompted some serious soul-searching, but folks should be turning to more trustworthy outlets than a false prophet like Cindy Jacobs," states NMA on its YouTube page.
