September 27, 2011 12:02am CST
Philippines right now particularly in Luzon are now experiencing another typhoon calle "Pedring". Classes in all levels are already been suspended. Just wish, hope and pray that there would be no casuallty. And hope they will have another bayanihan to help each others who are in need. Last night around qtr to 12mn we experience a heavy wind. It sound like Pedring passed here before heading to landfull in Luzon. I was scared every time there is a strong wind comes here in Cebu, especially now i have a son. Well not just a strong wind here in cebu but anywhere in the Philippines coz we have somany children to look after. Just hope people will will hold hands to survive with this another trials in life.

It seems like that Pedring is stronger than Ondoy. I am praying for everyone in Luzon especially to my relatives. Hope Pedring will leave soon.

Typhoon Pedring has left the country but has left so much damages in many parts of the country. I thank God we were not one of those who suffered that much. The storm was just mildly felt in our place. But just the same, I kept on praying because I know that in other provinces, the storm was really hitting hard. I think whether in time of storms or not we should not forget to pray and ask God to save us from calamities like this. God is the master of storm and He alone has the power to calm any storm that may come our way.

The Bay Walk Before and After the Storm - Shocking photo of typhoon destruction
I am sharing here one of the photos I got from a friend. A comparative photo of the Bay Walk, Roxas boulevard before and after the storm. This is the first typhoon that has ever devastated the Bay Walk in this way.

Pedring was quite a strong typhoon the good thing about it is that it didn't have the kind of rain that Ondoy has if not the destruction could have been worse. I have a friend in Cebu and I heard that there's still sun shine out there and they were a little bit sad when I informed them we can go home early while they work all day.

Yes definitely we are sad to know what had happen in Luzon. OUr prayers here in Cebu will continue for your protections and guidance. And i guess some of our radio stations, tv stations and other NGUs they are doing some reliefs to be sent to NCR as our little help. and hope it can help for those who needed most.

oh it has passed as now, but I think they are looking at two more problems, one is a tropical depression and another is a low pressure area and might again develop into another storm and might hit us again, let's all pray it does not, cause we are still recovering from this one.

It was a mistake to go to the office because when I got here, I found out that work has been suspended. I should have just stayed home with my two daughters and slept through the day. I am watching teleradyo right now and there have been a lot of reports about mass evacuations in flood stricken areas like Marikina and San Mateo. Pedring is strong when it comes to maximum sustained winds but the amount of rain it brought is not as strong as Ondoy. However, because of the strong winds, there have been massive brownouts all over the metro. Our place had no electricity since this morning and we have no idea when the power will return. I just hope it returns soon because my daughters are afraid of the dark and I don't think they can sleep later without the lights. Right now, I am praying for the safety of the people who are experiencing Pedring and I hope Pedring leaves our country soon.

Well help pray for this calamity. Just hope for the good health and safety in all the evacuation center. And hope they had enough food and water to drink.

I really experienced the strong winds and rain caused by typhoon "Pedring" , I was hesitant to go to office just this morning and along my to the office strong winds almost destroyed my umbrella and the rain kept pouring at me and when I arrived at my office I just discovered that they are suspending work for today.

I have a friend last night who gave me a call because the heavy wind has scared her and she was very afraid that Pedring might be Ondoy's lil brother. But I told her to calm down because panicking won't help. I am also very updated with Pedring's visit here in the Philippines. Though I am across the seas (I'm from the Visayas), I still fear for the people in NCR - not because I have friends there or relatives but above all, mainly because of what happened to the victims of Ondoy and hpw it has wrecked our country. Every storm will serve as a reminder that we should take care of nature. Because once we take them for granted, we're the ones who will be sorry.

I am in Baguio right now and the wind is so strong. The rain, not that much but if you combine the rain and wind, it is definitely powerful. It may seem insensitive to others but I like that it is signal number 3 here because my school will not suspend our class even if the typhoon is strong. I am happy to be warm, dry and safe here at home rather than being cold and wet in school.

Hi igatiful_badass! Well typhoon Pedring indeed passed into our country with much devastation. The strong winds he brought to the country have caused storm surges that damage a lot of houses and property. He left also many cities and barangays submerged in water, forcing most of the residents to temporarily stay at evacuation center. It seems that the power of typhoons that coming to us have changed lately, where most of the people residing in coastal area have said that they have never experienced such storm surges in their life before. Pag-asa have already sighted 2 new upcoming typhoons, hope and pray that these would not bring such devastation and damages to our country. Have a nice day!

The typhoons that have visited Philippines are truly devastating. Long before or during my time, there was no such thing as overhead,and over the roof kind of flooding. I still believe that negligence and corruption on the part of the Authorities are the culprit of all these tragedies. Even if the storms are too strong, given the proper monitoring of all our facilities, strict implementation of the do's and don'ts for our nature or environment, stop corrupt management in assuring our security and safety, the people will surely be protected against the blow of typhoons. We should pray first for these sloppy people to change before we think of the damage that will be coming.

Hi! According to the news, there are lots of casualties already since yesterday especially in Manila. The roads were flooded. Roxas boulevard was flooded. The brick wall in Manila Bay was destroyed. Sofitel Hotel was flooded and they had to evacuate their visitors. The flood damaged the cars parked in the hotel. Even the hospital was flooded and they announced yesterday that they could not accept patients for operation (I'm not sure now if they're back to normal already). Not only buildings and structures were the casualties, there were also reported deaths and missing people. Towns were flooded such as the CAMANAVA area (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela). Typhoon Pedring was really terrible. I am just thankful that there were not much damage here in our town. I pity those victims. We should pray for them.

I wish I was in Cebu too to experience good weather. I'm From Bulacan and this time it's already 8:38pm and we're still experiencing heavy rains but less winds already. I'm afraid to lose my internet connection, my life will be boring without my internet. (lol) Luckily we're on a safe place compared to some. But Ondoy is far more ravaging than Pedring. Maybe because we are more prepared this time than Ondoy and we learned our lesssons already during the Ondoy experienced. wishing the next typhoon will not be stronger as Pedring and Ondoy! Just smile and sing "What a wonderful World"! (lol)

Yeah! This typhoon is quite nasty. The heavy downpour plus the strong gust of wind really is something scary. I see a lot of umbrellas tumbling over into disaster and a lot of flooded streets on my way to work. Good thing that the classes were suspended even though I still got my full hours of work going with it. The roads are a bit dangerous until now. I saw a lot of uprooted trees and signage everywhere. Electricity is also a big problem with a lot of areas too. I hope the typhoon will stop and the weather will calm down now. But really, all I want to do is to sleep this typhoon out.

Actually, Pedring passed by our region yesterday. All levels of classes were suspended and we were made to go home at lunchtime . The governor declared it as a non-working day. I am glad though that it wasn't that strong - the wind and the rain. Today, we are back to normal although a bit rainy and gloomy still. But today, our daughter sent me a message that Pedring is at their place (Manila) already . She was worried though that the brownout might last until tonight, so she is already studying hard that moment she sent me the message. I prayed last night that Pedring would simply pass and just go out to the seas , and not ravage us much.
