Worried about Typhoon Rammasun / Glenda

Just over a week ago I was in the wonderful City of Legazpi, Bicol, Albay region of the Philippines, having a great vacation. And now Typhoon Rammasun is due to make landfall there today. Legazpi City is where it is due to hit first. And I am worried for friends and loved ones there.

Schools were sent home yesterday, homes are being repaired and roofs secured, and the population are stocking up with food and water.

I wish I was there seeing whats going on, instead of being here worrying about it 😦

UPDATE 15:26hrs Qatar (20:26hrs Philippines)

The typhoon is well and truly making its presence known in Legazpi. Trees being stripped of leaves, water coming in through every gap in the windows and doors, power been off for hours now. Even over the land line phone I was calling I could hear the wind, the rain and the roof rattling. People are scared, children are crying. And I am here powerless to help in any way at all. I am hating this.
