Stockpile on Food and Supplies Before Typhoon Hits

Typhoons are common in the Philippines, but they’re becoming more powerful over the years. This means that the chances of you being cooped up at home with your families for days on end is greater now than ever before. Being prepared during emergency situations is a wise thing to do, especially if you live in cities which easily get flooded.

While we are hoping for the best, we should be prepared to face the worst case scenario. If your family has been instructed to evacuate by the local government, do so. Do not be afraid to leave your home and belongings in exchange for your security and safety. If your area is really in danger, pack a light bag with the essentials and secure your belongings. You can waterproof them and keep them in a high place for when you come back to your house.

If you have the time to haul most of your things to a safer place, such as the house of a relative whose house is located on very high ground, do so. It will be better if you stay there and ride out the storm in safety.
