Hi! I’m already sleeping when strong winds caused by Typhoon Glenda woke me up.. It was around 3 AM in the morning when Cavite was hit. It was scary that I wasn’t able to go back to sleep. I was kinda worried too that my glass window might breaks into pieces because there is a part that is cracked.
Fact: There are 16 typhoons come in the Philippine Area of Responsibility and about 6 or 9 of these makes landfall.
Since in our town still has electricity and I can’t sleep, I use that time to search for things WE need to prepare during these times. (Thanks to Google! :)) However, all of the articles I’ve read were from the other countries and some of those are not applicable in the Philippines. I gather those information and comes up with these:
Things to Prepare During Typhoons:
✅ Flashlights, Candles, Match or Lighter
✅ Extra batteries (for flashlights, mobile phones, and radio)
✅ FULLY CHARGED mobile phones and rechargeable lamps or flashlights, powerbank, and extra batteries
✅ Containers of drinking water
✅ Non-perishable food (canned goods, biscuits, etc.)
✅ Manual can opener
✅ Source of water for cleaning purposes (Fill water tanks or dram)
✅ Emergency kit (For emergency cases)
I hope these information will help you. 😊 Keep safe everyone! 😊
