How Typhoon Pepeng (Parma) Looks Like

Metro Manila and neighboring towns Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and Cavite are still recovering from Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana), and another typhoon is heading its way here.

This early, Typhoon Pepeng (Parma) is described as a super typhoon, packing winds of 150mph and it’s heading toward northern Luzon.

Help us pray that Pepeng (Parma) weakens as it nears land!

As I write now, rains are starting to pour in Makati. Plurkers also share that it’s beginning to rain in their areas (Quezon City and Pasig). Yet, more help is needed in the calamity areas. If you have more to give, visit these drop-off points:

    I rarely pray outside of the nightly prayer before bed, but I am now. It’s been over a year since I met the author of this blog during an online game of literati. Since then, I’ve learned a lot about the Philippines and the wonderful people that live there.

    We can’t control torrential rains or typhoons, but we can help each other with a simple prayer. Even if Pepeng hits land, those enduring it will somehow benefit from our prayers.

    As for donating cash, it’s a great idea. If you are living in America like me, this would be a great time to donate to our good friends in the Philippines who have supported us voraciously over ths years.
