A stormy night on Christmas?

Davao City at the moment is on the alert because of the typhoon Vinta hits us. Some of the places are flooded with water especially those who live near the river. The boyfriend is still in the office, monitoring the places. And as of the moment, rescuer are spotted in the entire Davao City. I am afraid of the boyfriend because he mentioned that he will be deployed in the city proper and I'm so afraid. Though it's not raining here in Davao. I heard that in the near mountainside are raining so heavily. That is why the river is very high. I also heard the news that typhoon will be gone on Christmas Eve. I worried about those people who will be celebrating Christmas outside their houses because of the flood. I hope everyone is okay despite the calamities we are facing at the moment. I hope the boyfriend is safe as well. How are you so far today my virtual friends?

Is your BF involve in search and rescue missions that he has to out monitoring the situation? Mountain mudslides can be very dangerous even to rescuers. soil erosion make where the mud flow unpredictable.

Yes, he works at 911 as a Fire Fighter and trained for rescue. Hopefully, he will not be deployed in the critical area.

The Caribbean had its season of hurricanes during the summer months - and it is over till next year. Hope everyone there stays safe. Pity those typhoons come at Christmas time.
