Top of the news today is the extensive monitoring of PAG-ASA as Typhoon Ompong entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility since Wednesday. Today, its expected landfall will create tremendous damage to the whole Luzon and Central Luzon this weekend.
Every region and local government is now on red alert, where people from nearby seas and rivers are being forcibly brought to designated evacuation centers.
Despite the threat of typhoon Ompong, Marikina as one of the top cities that is expected to have the biggest need for rescue and keen eye of the government, some people and event just need to be celebrated and commemorated.
Tornado Intrudes A Wedding
A video clip from a wedding event in Marikina is captured where people are first seen happily celebrating a sacred event until happy faces turned into panic as tornado suddenly came into the picture. The place went black, and people are heard shouting in panic and being told to calm down.
The short clip is uploaded by a Facebook netizen, Von Eric Espina. The video has been continuously shared by many not to instill fear but to create awareness among people, especially to those living in Marikina to be prepared and alert.
Marikina is known for being flood-stricken so its local government has been somewhat expert when it comes to strong typhoons.
Ompong is currently hitting Isabela, Cagayan, and Batanes, but still, Metro Manila rivers are bound for monitoring, and definitely not excluded in the list of places which the typhoon will greatly cause harm.
Storm surges, landslides, and tornados are expected as Ompong stays in PAR until Sunday. Good thing is that the government is actively warning and putting everyone alert. Disaster pieces of equipment and relief goods are already sent to local regions and cities of Metro. Schools in all levels are as well pre-empted.
