Classes were suspended yesterday because of an impending tropical storm. Some roads in NCR were already flooded but it's a good thing DedEd decided to suspend classes early since no incidence of students stranded in school was reported.

Tropical storm Juaning is set to hit Manila at1 P.M. today. Rain is expected so we are gearing up for a possible flooding in our area. It's a good thing that the typhoon has only a maximum sustained winds of 85 kph near the center with a 100kph gust of wind. In the past, typhoons with sustained winds over 150 kph caused many homes to lose their roof.

Traditional houses here in Manila have wood roof framing that could be easily blown away by a strong typhoon. However in the last 20 years or so, more homes were opting for steel framing for structural strength. Yup! steel buildings have translated to houses now.

Anyway, the typhoon is forecasted to move West Northwest at 11 kph so by tomorrow morning it will be out of the Philippine's area of responsibility. Great!
