Update on Typhoon Pepeng

Received an email from a UNILAB employee just this minute. All UNILAB employees were permitted to go home at this early to prepare for the coming Supertyphoon Pepeng. Some of her words struck me as i wanted to go home at this very minute too, i just hope our management can get to read this one.

On her email she said:
As of now, Pepeng is classified as type 5 hurricane same as Katrina. It's a tropical cyclone already not anymore a storm. It has entered Philippine area of responsibility already. Critical hour is 9 PM tonight. Storm is expected to bring in strong winds (stronger than Milenyo) and rainfall also. Although the eye of the storm will not hit Metro Manila, it's tail/part of the storm's body will.

This list below is her list of a MUST to do esp during this time of SUPERTYPHOON PEPENG. You might found this beneficial too..

~ Almost all supermarkets now are not accepting credit cards/ debit cards because some of the lines are still busted. So withdraw enough cash now.

~ Since the new typhoon is expected to bring in strong winds, meralco will most likely shut down power.. The usual, charge everything you need. If you have 2 phones, don't use both at the same time.

~ Shut down your circuit breakers (it's dangerous to keep your circuit breakers on during a wind storm even if it's brown out because electricity might surge or something?)

~ If your house is gated, get out as soon as the water reaches knee level because at that level, it will be very difficult to open your gate and evacuate.

~ Have ziplocks ready so that just in case, you can put your valuables inside and it won't get wet.

Just now, Pres. GMA declares the whole Philippines under state of calamity read here.

Prepare yourself for what's coming. Don't forget to say your prayers tonight. God be with us always.
