Forget Typhoon Maring and Start Relaxing

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration announced Public Storm Warning Signal No. 1 last August 17, 2013 as Typhoon ‘Maring’ entered Metro Manila and frightened the rest of Luzon with continuous heavy rains and thunderstorms.

 From August 18 up to August 20, Maring showered the Philippines with two inches of rain an hour, which quickly caused flood in different areas of Luzon. Work and classes were suspended as many were trapped in one place for a day or two. Roads were affirmed not-passable, which left the Filipino citizens and even tourists no choice but to swim across the enormous flood to get home.


The weather and massive flooding killed at least 15 people and obliged families from different areas of the country to vacate and reside in evacuation centers, while their homes were being submerged by waist-deep flood. More than one million individuals were badly affected and the damage had brought the Filipino public in dismay.

Wednesday morning, August 21, 2013 – Maring left the Philippines leaving the entire Luzon enclosed with flood and misery. Many have gone busy cleaning mud-filled roads and millions were stuck in evacuation centers, all desperate for help.
