Typhoons, typhoons

North Luzon rice fields were flattened by Super typhoon Juan. Many trees were uprooted, homes wrecked, some lives were also taken and livelihood destroyed. A hefty 8 billion cost of damage in the agricultural sector was estimated, less the infrastructure.

Although enough preparations were made prior to Juan's landfall, the catastrophic event still inculcated to us that no one can withstand the fury of Mother Nature.

Typhoon Juan is out of the country now but another tropical depression - which will be named typhoon Katring when it enters Philippine Area of Responsibility, is on the verge of breaking our grounds again.

Please pray that Katring won't be too dangerous as Juan or else the Philippines will surely be mourning for another major, major losses.
