Dante and Emong, are the tropical cyclones this month and they followed almost the same path. These two enhanced the southwest monsoon which brought heavy rains for the past few days. Aside from these cyclones, tornadoes are also more frequent now since it’s a thunderstorm season; the cumulonimbus or thunderstorm cloud is a source of tornadoes or waterspouts. I was in Manila for the past 3 days and the situation there is worse. It was my first experience to be caught in heavy traffic around 1am in EDSA because of the heavy rains, which flooded some areas in the metro.
