5 Tips in preparing for a Typhoon.



Goodbye Ondoy, Hello Typhoon PEPENG! Hmmp... Kainis!!!

"As of 5:00 p.m, 30 September 2009 Today, (Philippine Time) a Typhoon at the east of Northern Mindanao has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and was named 'PEPENG'." As forcasted by PAGASA.

Yes, another storm coming, I know a lot of families in Luzon have not yet recovered from the trauma of the Typoon Ondoy. Then here comes Typhoon PEPENG, a lot of us was not expecting Typhoon Ondoy will be this traumatic. We were caught off-guard even for those people where flooding is a normal scenery in their cities (Malabon, Marikina, Pasay & Pasig). I guess we have to be prepared this time. We should expect the unexpected.

So here are some tips and preparations in case of unexpected emergency like this occurs:

1.) Prepare Food Supplies suitable for 2-3 days.
  • We should have at least have Can Goods for us to consumed if this will happen again.
2.) Plan your escape route in case of Flood.
  • Don't Panic - make preparations where you can store food and a place you can safely stay.
3.) Prepare a disaster supply kit.
  • What is a disaster supply kit? - First Aid Kits, Spare Clothes, Flash Lights, Candle and etc. packed in one bag.
4.) Secure valuable things such as important documents, cellphones, jewelries and etc.
  • Secure your valuables specially documents such as Passport, Birth Certificates, Licenses, Cellphone, Money and Jewelries (For Pawn?) and etc.
5.) Note down important contact numbers.
  • Phil. National Red Cross - 527-0000
  • NDCC :912-5668, 911-1406, 912-2665, 911-5061
