Oh, yes! It’s another storm. I was checking out CNN Weather when I arrived in the office at around 9:30 in the morning and this wasn’t posted yet. Now, at around 12:30 in the afternoon, it seems that CNN has noticed the intensity of this storm.
Typhoon Durian, named after a fruit with a pungent odor, is currently hovering over the Bicol province of Catanduanes right and is on its way to Manila. Forecast for this storm include winds of up to 120 kph with gusts of up to 225 kph! Manila is bracing itself for any type of disaster caused by the storm, and that includes flash floods, storm surges, maybe even power outages due to toppled power lines (just like last time). Classes in all levels have already been suspended.
It’s a good thing that there’s no work tomorrow. The government moved the national holiday celebrating Andres Bonifacio’s heroism to Friday, Dec. 1, instead of the actual day itself, which happens to be today.
Well, I don’t mind staying at home. But bummer! We’re suppose to practice for our office Christmas party presentation on Friday. But it seems it may be cancelled because of the storm.
