Typhoon "Ompong" Landed in My City: Signal Number 3! Oh, boy!

I had just received an SMS and we need to be careful. It was an advisory from the local government agency. We are experiencing a strong typhoon now. I hope typhoon Ompong will pass through fast. I am so lucky that we still have electricity. It would be troublesome if there is a power interruption. How are you, guys? How's the weather in your world? Image Credit: philnewsph.com

Be safe, my friend. We are still on level 3. Some of our trees in the backyard were broken down by the strong wind.

We're in the middle of Hurricane Florence, although thank God it's not as bad in our part of NC (USA) as it is in some other parts of our state. I pray you and all your country will be safe in that typhoon.

@TheHorse Thanks, the flooding will probably be the worst part in certain areas of the state, but so far, it's not so bad right here. Of course, it's not completely over, either.

@1creekgirl I was wondering. How long until you're "in the clear"?

I hope so, my friend. We are greatly affected now. We don't have the power to check the update. I am using my generator and don't know when it will last.

I heard about the hurricane. I hope things will be fine soon. As of today, we are still on level 3. I hope it will be fine soon and typing this composition is quite troublesome since I am using a candle. I am using my generator at this point in time.

Stay safe and hope your typhoon doesn't cause too much trouble. Some parts of the U.S. Are experiencing a massive hurricane.

I heard about the hurricanes. That would be more dangerous as compared to a typhoon. But, it was quite strong at this point in time.

Here we also receive the warning. I am not sure whether it will have a big effect on here. As sometimes the typhoon will go to another direction and it will not hit here directly. I am not sure this time. So far everything is well but hot. I heard the typhoon will be here or around in the weekend. No matter what, I think it will be windy and rainy.

I hope it will not go to your country. Your place is quite near to my country. It is quite strong and we can't be sure if it will be gone tomorrow. We are still on level 3.

@Shavkat So far it is still calm here. I am not sure whether it will attack here. It seems the typhoon often turns to another directly when it wants to hit here.

I agree. I think it is quite dangerous in her area. They are near the seaside. For me, I am living on the mountainside. Regardless, we still need to be safe.

In Michigan it's cool, in the low 70s today and skies are clear. We're concerned about people who live in the eastern states, they are getting a terrible hurricane at this time!

Good to hear from you. We’re safe as well in here. I guess Manila was not hit badly by the storm. We just experienced rains and some winds that broke branches here and there. There was power interruption but was restored after a few hours.

@Shavkat You’re in Benguet area? Yeah I heard about the landslides that happened there. You were not directly hit by the typhoon but I guess being signal 3 is still within the range of the strong wind and rains. Glad to hear from you are safe still there.

@Shavkat I know how it feels I had the same experience of it about a couple of years ago. My province was also hit by a super typhoon.
