Wow, he's been there 2 weeks and gets to experience his first typhoon! This is headed to the south islands but he'll still feel the effects of it. Keep in mind, the wind information is in kilometers per hour, not miles per hour. I freaked out at first! This may cause a delay in his weekly email since many parts of the country suffer power losses. Luckily, since he is in the "big city," he may not have that trouble. Keep him and all the people of the Philippines in your prayers.
