Tropical storm Maring brought havoc to Central and  Southern Luzon and now on its way out of the country.  It had a  maximum sustained winds of 75 km/hour near the center and gustiness of up to 90 km/hour.  Metro Manila was not spared of flash floods and heavy rains.

I watched  the news the whole day yesterday and was wary of the heavy rains. I am afraid of flash floods but we were luckier than those places which experienced rising flood waters that entered their homes and caused tremendous traffic jams.  One subdivision in our town was submerged in water yesterday.

Our country experiences  an average of 15 to  18 typhoons every year with those coming in December or thereabouts the strongest. Since typhoon Ondoy back in September 2009, I got so afraid of typhoons, tropical storms and monsoon rains. We had the house renovated back then because most of our cabinets were destroyed and some of our furniture and appliances got flooded.  I will always remember that helpless feeling, the rising waters up to my neck when we left the house to seek refuge from  our neighbor’s house.

I see the sun shining again. Good day everyone.
