Fellow pexers, after the onslaught of typhoon Ondoy, which do you think is our worst typhoon ever and why?
In the recent years, two typhoons come to my mind as the strongest and the worst ones. Many lives were lost and millions of pesos worth of properties and infrastructures were damaged.
1. Milenyo - I remeber that I was still working in the south at the time that this typhoon struck the Metro. When we went out of the office, even if the management strongly suggested that we should stay put, I was amazed how strong the winds were. I could feel myself being blown away. We could see brances of trees, roofs and billboards everywhere. Deadly combination of strong wind and heavy rains.
2. Ondoy - I never thought that this would be a BIG one. Though the wind was not as strong as Milenyo, the heavy rainfall flooded most parts of Manila and Rizal.
