Typhoon Basyang hit Central Luzon

And this is my documentation of our crops after they were hit by typhoon Basyang
                           (Me and my beloved mother worked hard for this plant)

 It is disappointing that our government is always caught unprepared disasters come. More so, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) officials responsible for this are quite slow in giving up-to-date forecasts as well as disseminating information. But we should not point all our fingers at them as their services are also affected by insufficiency of modern equipment and instrument.  I don’t even want to recall the horrible aftermath of Typhoon Ondoy were a vast loss of lives and causalities were recorded.

Just like today,  the typhoon increased in strength and changed direction. That’s why people in Central Luzon were not aware or did not expect that tropical storm “Basyang” with (international codename: Conson) would bring heavy rains and strong winds, lifting the storm signal from number 1 to 3. In areas most affected like ours, I experienced a sleepless night during its occurrence. Also, take into account the power interruption. May this incident be an eye-opener to the national government to do what should be done.
