Typhoon Ruby Updates

It is beyond scary to know that Typhoon Ruby will be as strong as last year’s Typhoon Yolanda as forecasts say. Yolanda (or internationally known as, Haiyan) has devastated most of Central Visayas which citizens are now still recuperating from.

Different organizations are now jumping off the bat for preventive measures. It’s good to see all these corporations exert an effort into¬†helping prevent any ill-fated circumstances. Google Philippines published a crisis map wherein evacuation centers, among other stuff, are mapped out, along with a Public Alerts page.

I was just at El Nido just after Glenda and pre-Henry when I experienced first hand how coastal areas are in these times of big ass tandem of waves and winds.

Let’s all be prepared for the storms ahead!
