Storm Glenda’s Havoc Recalled

The immeasurable destruction of the deadliest tropical cyclone ever to hit the Philippines has ultimately paralyzed the capital city because it had even affected the power supply alll over the nation. As a result, classes in all levels were suspended. Moreover, some roofs were torn apart just like pieces of paper.

Thus, it can be aptly described as a ceaseless inferno as cars were overturned as if these vehicles were just like matchboxes. Further, there were also remote fishing villages which did not escape the treacherous eye of cyclone Glenda. Vividly, a tricycle driver whose name is Pedro Rojas said:

I thought I was going to die. I went out to look for gasoline in case we needed to evacuate, but it was a mistake. It was all because, my tricycle rolled over twice after I slammed into sheets of rain. It was like hitting a wall… huge tin roofings were flying everywhere.

Storm Glenda which has an international name of Rammasun, which horribly means God of Thunder has smashed lots of fishing communities as early as Tuesday. It had a maximum sustained winds of 250 kilometers per hour. However, it had slowly weakened a bit as it swiftly intersected Luzon’s main islands. Though the fierce eye of the storm did not directly hit Manila, its strong and howling winds have mercilessly made Metro Manila something like a weightless paper doll. Watch this video video footage and see tropical storm Glenda swayed some parts of the Metro Manila like a helpless baby.

According to the Manila Electric Company, it has revealed that almost 5.3 million households had lost electricity. In effect, there are some areas which have to patiently wait until its power supply can be normally restored. Indeed, typhoon Glenda has bitterly turned the Philippines into a kind of archipelago which has been filled with terror and woes that no one can ever escape.
