Another typhoon has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility named Glenda raised the awareness of the country because of the past experiences. This time, the name of the typhoon is Glenda which is said to be destructive due to strong winds and heavy rains. According to the weather bureau of PAGASA, the typhoon has maximum winds of 120 kph near the center with a gustiness of 150 kph. This has prompted both local and national government to do something in order to protect the people.
Glenda’s entry to PAR is almost the same as Milenyo’s in 2006 that brought destruction in Metro Manila. The fact is when we look at the track of the said typhoon we can see that it is almost where Milendo was tracked before. Because of this comparison, many are preparing so that they will not be able to face the consequence of being unprepared.
