Last year, Typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng left a lot of families homeless in the Philippines. Some even died and the rest suffered from major accidents. Northern Luzon and Metro Manila were strongly hit. It left a lot of Filipinos devastated and some of them haven’t recovered up to this day.
Right now, Super Typhoon Megi enters the country specifically in Northern Luzon. There are landslides reports from Isabela and the Cagayan area. The residents were requested to evacuate in a more safe area to avoid unfortunate deaths and accidents.
