Storm Shelters

The recent devastation brought by two typhoons that hit our country left thousands of people homeless and billions of pesos of agricultural and industrial infrastracture destroyed. The plight of thousands of our fellow countrymen is disheartening. Seein it on T.V. is quite different. I can just feel the suffering of those stranded in storm shelters with little food and water supply.

Our country experiences up to 26 tropical storms every year and both the media and the public are working together to minimize the destruction of properties and lives lost. Television, radio and newspapers give us up –to-date data and other information whenever a storm signal or a low pressure area is brewing and is about to enter our country. It’s good to be always ready when calamaties strike.
