BOPHA is a flower's name and also the name of the tropical cyclone in the West Pacific. As of today, it has intensified into a typhoon and is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility this Monday.
It will be named PABLO and it is also expected to make landfall in the Visayas and Mindanao regions. December of last year, Mindanao experienced a disastrous storm, SENDONG. Let's just pray that Pablo won't be the same so we could all have a happy Christmas.
