Typhoon watching can be tourism attraction NOT
For days now, the East is soaked due to downpour brought by Hurricane (typhoon for you unlearned Tagalog speaking kababayans).
Buti na lang cancelled yong doctor's appointment ko.
Here, where even a not so heavy rain is considered a threat to safety due to flashflood it may bring or flooding due to overflowing of creek, having typhoon is not at all COOL. Here, where storm watch and storm alerts are livestreamed to warn people NOT TO ATTEMPT DRIVING even in shallow-looking pool of water, people stayed indoors. And oh avoid staying near windows because lightning may strike once. YES VIRGINIA, someone is going to INFORM you that small pool of water when raining is dangerous, that the car driver in the Philippines whose car floated in a body of water because nobody informed him would have no cause to complain.
