Super Typhoon Pepeng is Coming

Posted by The Queen Bee at Thursday, October 01, 2009
We've barely recovered from the massive damage caused by Ondoy, the Filipinos are again bracing themselves for another storm. Super Typhoon Pepeng whose international name is Parma, is classified as a Category 5 typhoon with maximum winds of 230-250kph. I have read in the Inquirer that this is going to be the projected path of Super Typhoon Pepeng which is expected to hit Manila on Saturday afternoon.



We have a sister who lives in Manila and we are extremely worried. I know we can be a little overboard, consistently reminding her to be prepared and what to do whenever a typhoon is coming. Seeing the ghastly destruction that Ondoy left, we can't help but be alarmed. Everyone was caught unprepared back then with the aftermath of the heavy rains that Ondoy brought,then we have every reason now to be prepared for Super Typhoon Pepeng.

We kept on telling our sister to always bear these things in mind:

Essentials:

Flashlights and batteries
Ready to eat and ready to cook food like noodles and canned goods
Medical Kit and medicines like paracetamol and loperamide
bottled water
toiletries
candles and matches
fully-charged cellphone

What to do:

withdraw money from ATM ahead of time
Listen to the News
Charge cellphone
Keep in touch
keep presence of mind and don't panic in order for you to assess things. If you need to evacuate, do so while you still can.
and most importantly: Pray unceasingly

In this time of great trial, we can only hope and pray that the typhoon averts its path or for it not to be as fierce as the one before it.
