First time typhoon experience

Typhoon is not new to me because we have experienced it many times already back when I was in the province of my parents.  I know what it’s like so I am not that scared after hearing about the typhoon Pablo that will be going to heat the Mindanao part of the country.  Even though I have experienced typhoon already, it is my first time to experience typhoon herein Davao City.  The country is experiencing several typhoons in a year, but Mindanao provinces are seldom hit especially Davao City.  We are so blessed because we spared from those floods, flash flood, and other disasters brought by typhoon/storm.

December 4, 2012, typhoon Pablo expected to landfall in Mindanao provinces.  There are lots of advisory and news to make the people aware of the super typhoon Pablo.  Weather reports about the typhoon does helps the affected areas to get ready as well as the evacuation areas.  Some are already in the evacuation areas to keep their family safe.  However, the typhoon changed its direction and hit the other part of Mindanao.  People living in the affected areas caught unaware that cause hundreds of houses were swept by flash foods, roofs were swept away, trees were fell, and the water rise up so fast.  And the worse is that many lives buried alive.

Even if the incident is so painful for the people of the affected areas, I hope that they will still look at the bright side of everything.  I hope that they will continue living and moving on.  Though it is not easy and so painful especially those family members buried alive.  Still life is a wonderful journey.  Things like this is part of trials in life, the most important is that how we are going to stand up and continue living after the painful trials and difficulties we have met.

To my countrymen, just keep the faith and hold on to God because He knows, He listens and He will always be there for us.  The pain and the tears will wipe away soon.
