Extremely heavy Thunderstorm in Camiguin
An extreme thunderstorm woke up Camiguin this morning. Especially the coastal region between Mambajao and Yumbing experienced blinding lightnings and shaking thunders.
Butch woke up around 4 a.m. by torrential rainfall. I got shaken in the bed an hour later. Lightnings struck in the sea a few meters from our house. Our access road turned into a mountain torrent with rolling boulders and knee-deep waters. I have never experienced such a violent thunderstorm in all my life.
The following pictures give you some impressions of the masses of water the extreme thunderstorm brought to Camiguin. You may want to click on the photos to enlarge them.

At this moment, 10:45 a.m. a new thunderstorm is building up in the mountains. Don’t forget your umbrella.
