It was just a little over 13 months ago when Super Typhoon Yolanda (with Haiyan as its international name) devastated the country, leaving thousands of people killed especially in the Eastern part of Visayas. And now, another potential super typhoon is threatening the country, Typhoon Hagupit and is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility as soon as tomorrow.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has already issued advisories that Typhoon Hagupit—to be renamed as Typhoon Ruby once it enters the country—can bring storm surges up to 4 meters.
And as much as the government aims for a zero casualty when the typhoon hits the country, everyone of us are still responsible for our own safety when disasters and natural calamities like this happens.
Luckily, we now have technology on our side to aid us during times like these. Navigate through the pages below to find out three of the best ways to keep ourselves updated with the vital information when disasters hit.
