MARIO 2014

Just 2 days after cyclone LUIS exited PAR, TC Mario started to develop. It didn't directly affect large cities in the country, but the Habagat was enhanced, bringing large volume of precipitation. It first flooded Cebu City, but at least it was only for a day. The next day, it flooded Manila and I feel really sad for the situation there. It wasn't as severe as Ondoy in 2009 or the Habagat in 2012, but this severe flooding happens almost every year now. I'm scared that this might eventually happen in Cebu. I really hope our city engineers and our leaders are taking into consideration the drainage system before giving permit to build structures like subdivisions.

So now, we are approaching the last quarter of the year, and this time, cyclone tracks moves down so it will be time for the people in Visayas and Mindanao to prepare for cyclones. I hope there won't be anything like Yolanda.
