Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng – appoaching

Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng

Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng is still approaching. PAGASA and other government agencies start now to inform people. Don’t mind this is the Philippines.

For 5 days now we follow this cyclone (aka. typhoon or storm). But the authorities here in the Philipines start to warn people just now. There are 5 days lost.  Why? We have put plywood on our windows. We have bought fuel for our generator. We have bought water and food. But what can people do in the touched regions, if the alert is coming too late? 5 days or 2 days? Why no earlier? You know: Bahala-na!
