PAGASA Warning: Super Typhoon to Hit the Philippines

As early as now, even before the tropical storm Megi is about to reach the Philippine area of responsibility, PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomic Services Administration) has already issued the storm warning. According to PAGASA report, Megi is expected to reach the Philippine area of responsibility this Friday evening or early morning tomorrow. It will be named "Juan" once it reach Philippine territory. It is expected to landfall in the Northern part of Luzon and it was also warned that it could bring heavy rainfall like in typhoon "Ondoy" (Ketsana) that happened in September last year that caused major damage in Luzon particularly in Metro Manila. People in the areas that will be affected should be prepared and should take every precautionary measures to minimize casualties. For the complete report on typhoon Megi, visit the 24-hour public weather forecast at or you can follow dost_pagasa in twitter for an hourly forecast.

Finally learning a hard lesson from previous mistakes, and we should all heed the warning since it is always been said that an ounce of prevention is far better than a pound of cure. Let us all pray that this will not be another Ondoy. May we all be safe, God Bless Us All!
