Typhoon Ramil entered the Philippine area of responsibility Friday night, barely three weeks after one of Southeast Asia’s most destructive storms hit the country.Ramil will be the 18th storm to enter the country this year.
Still battered from the devastation caused by Typhoon Pepeng last week, Benguet province is bracing for more possible destruction from the new tropical storm.Typhoon “Ramil” is expected to make landfall in Cagayan province at noon Thursday and to dump more rain on storm-weary provinces, raising fears of more flooding and landslides. According to the report that this is much stronger than "ondoy and pepeng."
Calling all Filipinos to offer a special prayer to spare the country from further devastation, while thousands of people were evacuated from areas prone to floods and landslides in northern Luzon ahead of the powerful typhoon.
The special prayer also asks for forgiveness for sins against nature with the hope that people have learned their lesson not to abuse the environment.
