Typhoon Rammasun (Cat 3) Headed Towards Manila. This tropical storm is predicted to be the first direct hit on the capital in four years. Rammasun is the strongest storm to threaten the country since Haiyan, a Cat-5 "super typhoon," that wiped out nearly everything in its path when it crossed over the central Philippines in November, 2013, just eight months ago. The major lesson from last Haiyan: ANTICIPATORY ACTIONS ARE THE KEY TO PREPAREDNESS. People who endured haiyan should know 1) what to expect (e.G., high-velocity winds, rain, flash floods, landslides, and storm surge), 2) where and when it will happen, and 3) what they should (and should not) do to prepare will survive.
