Last June 14, another typhoon attacked our country. It was named as typhoon Butchoy, this is the second typhoon entered in the Philippines this year. There are many places affected by the said typhoon. According to PAGASA, it spotted “Butchoy” 500 kilometers east-southeast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar. It has maximum sustained winds of 110 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 140 kph. Also a landslide and flash flood prone area, as it is nearest to the slow-moving storm. The other affected area, are Casiguran, Aurora, Basco, Batanes. The areas that will mostly be affected are the Ilocos provinces, Aurora, Cagayan, parts of Quezon and the Cordilleras. The residents in sea communities in Catanduanes and Mindoro have begun taking their boats further inland in preparation for the strong waves or possible storm surges caused by Butchoy.
Anyway, one of the most tragic things happened was in the place of El Nido, Palawan when the ship MV Josiel II sank in the middle of the storm. The tourists in Palawan are affected because of this accident; some of their scheduled are postponed. Aside from the tourists, the sea is affected if the many passengers people and carabao animals putrid because many of them are missing. Based on the Task Force, the all dead animals give the air pollution that cause of rain acid, and more of the plant, building will become destroy. I am thankful because my town is not affected by typhoon Butchoy.
