Typhoon Pedring Seems Like Ondoy The Second!

Last Monday, September 26, 2011 seemed like another "Ondoy," a very strong typhoon which hit the country two years ago!

It was because another typhoon named "Pedring" shocked the whole part of Luzon!

News said that this typhoon was stronger than Ondoy! And did you know that the date September 26 when Pedring strike is actually the very same date that Ondoy hit?! Yeah, it was September 26, 2009 when Ondoy devastated the country! Now exactly two years ago, here comes Pedring!

Below are two of the scenarios during the last typhoon Pedring:

On Tuesday, September 27, 2011, the storm signal intensified! Stronger wind struck the land! Greater rain falls flooded majority of the area in Metro Manila!

The worst things: no electricity (full blackout), no telephone line, no MRT/LRT operation, flooded areas, and shocking wind blows!

I know the experience of Ondoy! I was also one of the victims of it two years ago! I experienced to walk on a full flooded Buendia, to be stranded in the flooded road, to be stacked in the office, to walk down from 15TH floor since no elevator because of brownout, and to sleep in the passenger bus for the whole midnight because of the over headed flood!

Thanks God, our manager allowed us to not anymore go to our office (I really can't since there's no more transportation that will bring me to work!).

Now all things return to normal! We are still thankful that Pedring didn't hit us as strong as Ondoy did! All of us were safe and sound! c",)
