We are having a storm in the Philippines – the Falcon Storm (Bagyong Falcon).
Tropical Storm “FALCON” has maintained its strength as it continues to move North Northwestward.
If I am correctly informed, the Falcon Storm / Bagyong Falcon is a signal number one storm.
For days it has been raining non-stop, or is it just me because whenever I look outside there’s the rain. Based on my observation the rainfall just changes in intensity, but never stops.
The Falcon Storm reminds me so much of Bagyong Ondoy (Typhoon Ketsana) because of the nonstop rainfall and many flooded streets / roads.
Let us pray that Falcon Storm leaves soon so we would not experience again what happened when there was Ondoy. Many homes were flooded, and there was power outage for several days. It was nightmare.
