PINOY POP POTPOURRI ... Snippets of Filipino life from a true-blue Filipino.
I also took a video during this storm. The trees from our garden were actually swaying crazily, almost breaking from their trunks. We were actually afraid about Pedring being the next Ondoy. Thank God it wasn't.
Typhoon Pedring may not be as disastrous as Ondoy but let us all be reminded to take the necessary precautions during times like these. Let's pray that our country will be spared from another nature's wrath.
i think the key is to always be prepared... like in US... some tornado prone states require houses built with basements. I think our government should have guidelines as well.. but most importantly, they should fix our drainage system! I graduated five years ago but i think the drainage system of taft avenue is just the same
We are a resilient bunch but I hope no major typhoon or calamity strikes us.
The rainy season has started. I hope Pinoys are more prepared this time around.
I suppose we've been lucky here in Davao so far. Pero ingat pa rin sa tuwing may namumuong ITCZ.
I'm from bicol and our place is always hit by storms.
cebu is not always hit by storms, but we should always be prepared. hopefully no storm as destructive as ondoy would hit again.
We should always be prepared now that the rainy season already started.

we're used to it but it's always pay to be careful and prepared...
I wished my house has a basement or shelter in case of tornado.The typhoon in Philippines is really scary specially if you have trees near the house.
Timely post as it is now the start of the typhoon season. I do remember Pedring. That was a really strong storm.
getting hit by a typhoon is a regular thing for us..what's irregular is getting consequently hit by super typhoons,it's felt all over the world, global warming is making a fierce rampage
I think the government needs to step up in improving our drainage and flood control programs. We spend so much on rehabilitating the country after typhoons. Sayang as the resources can be funneled to poverty reduction instead.
What I remember the most is Sisang, when I was still in grade school, and Ondoy. Was really worried for my sister's safety.
