Super Typhoon "Megi" hits northern Philippines

After I've done my morning routine, turning the computer on is always next thing to do. I signed in to facebook, then email, then my blog. As I signed out from my yahoo mail a horrible news struck and caught my attention;
"Super Typhoon Megi hits northern Philippines!"

An intense "super typhoon" has made landfall in the northern Philippines, lashing the area with heavy rain and winds of up to 225km/h (140mph).
At least one person has been reported killed, and thousands have fled their homes. Emergency services are on alert, and many schools are closed.
Typhoon Megi is the strongest storm the Philippines has faced for four years.
In 2006, a storm with winds of 155km/h triggered mudslides, burying villages and killing about 1,000 people.
Tropical cyclones formed in the Pacific Ocean are called typhoons, but are classified on a scale of one to five in the same way as Atlantic Ocean hurricanes.
Strong typhoons with sustained winds of at least 130 knots (150mph; 240km/h), are referred to as super typhoons, according to the US Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
Forecasters said Megi was a super typhoon as it made landfall, but weakened slightly as it made its way across the northern Philippines.

It is likely this months Philippines experienced such devastating force of nature. Typhoons are forecasted everywhere. We are just so luckily in our province that we are not that much affected when this kind of disturbance strikes. I am not that worried with my family now, chatted to my sister and she said they are fine. She didn't even know it was that horrible. (toink!I am more updated tha her..hehe)But I am still worried, about my fellow Filipino's, how many lives were affected after that.Properties being destroyed like farms which is just the only livelihood of most of my fellow Filipino's. The fishermen as well, during this horrible weather means they can't go in the sea fishing. Nothing to provide for the family. Especially those living in Northern part of the Philippines, they lost their houses, livestock, properties and livelihood. Now living in a crowded evacuation centre. I can't do a lot about this really, all I can offer is my prayer, your prayer. Please take time to offer one, especially to my fellow Filipinos who are blogging. Pray for our country, for our fellow men, for our government that they will be able to give rescue and help to those in need and tackle the problems that lies ahead after the destruction. Father God we offer this to you..Amen.
