It was barely two years ago when Typhoon Ondoy hit the Philippines and left majority of Luzon in ruins, with damages reaching P11 billion and claiming 464 lives in its wake. With an average of 20 typhoons annually, the Philippines has yet to see 16 more after Dodong, which raises the question— can the horrors of Ondoy be repeated?
Join resident weatherman Kuya Kim as he gives you a crash course on disaster preparedness this Saturday (June 18) in “ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs Special Report” titled “Oplan: Tag-Ulan.”
Watch as he traces the causes of the floods in the Camanava area, as well as the Manila, Pasig, Rizal and Marikina basin and other areas in Luzon. He will also give tips on how to survive another disaster like Ondoy.
Kuya Kim meets Ondoy survivors Zenaida Oracion and Perla Robles, whose experiences of being stranded on rooftops, wading through floods, and floating on basins, have made them always ready for another onslaught using only practical household devices such as styrofoam and plastic bottles as their precautions.
