Super Typhoon Yolanda

Today, we were told to prepare for the coming super typhoon Yolanda or HAIYAN for its international name.  It has never expected  that a super typhoon can come before this year ends, although we are still in the rainy season. Living in a tropical country, typhoon is always expected but not to the super typhoon.  It has been estimated to the maximum sustained winds of 195 kph near the center and the gustiness of up to 230 kph. The strength of the typhoon is not safe for us especially that we had just experienced earthquakes last month and a tropical depression just earlier this week that brought whirlwinds and water spout which destroyed many houses and establishments.

This morning, hubby went to buy for our food. We stock food, emergency kit, flashlights, water and batteries. He told us that people are in panic buying of food and other important needs.  He told us that people filled their shopping bags with food, canned goods, water and bread. People are taking the government’s warning seriously about the super typhoon by saving food and some  are evacuated to safer areas. It is really important to be ready always than sorry for not taking the warnings seriously.

Tonight before going to bed, it is important to say prayers for safety even a strong typhoon will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility. It is important to be ready in everything no matter what lies ahead. Lord Jesus.. We entrust to you our lives.  Lord Jesus, spare us from danger.
