Really? when did this happen? I'm in Makati and I haven't heard anything about it, my boyfriend and my brother works in the fort and they haven't said anything about it.. It would be cool though if I see one, I have never seen a "ipo-ipo".. of course, I hope nobody gets hurt or something. =)

Well, I think ipo ipo is a smaller form of a tornado. But of course it is not one of those that we see in other countries that are very much destructive. If I am not mistaken, our country the Philippines is rarely visited by tornado that brings forth great damage. Usually what we encounter here are typhoons. If we categorize the weather disturbance, it usually starts with low pressure are, then if it develops, it becomes a tropical depression, when it starts to develop strength, it becomes a storm with different signals ranging from signal number 1 to signal number 3. Higher than that it may develop into hurricanes and tornado. We are lucky since our geographical location is not affected by those two destructive weather disturbance.

I guess the reason for this is because of the slow shift of change in the climate. If you've noticed earlier, our country's climate is getting hotter. Maybe that effect has something to do with the reason phenomenons happening in our country. Hey, we may even have snow in the future.
