Typhoon Gener has paralyzed the Philippines this week when classes in at least a couple of days during the week were suspended. Floods hit many parts of Metro Manila and provinces like Obando, Bulacan. Thank God that in our area the flooding during Ondoy did not happen again. The worst thing that we experienced was not being able to sleep because of worrying about getting flooded again. Electric power did not get disrupted but among the obvious effects were the cable connection disruption and the slowing down of the internet connection (Sky Cable and Smart Bro). It was a great help to find a site that could help with the internet speed as I was able to speed up computer at Iolo.com. The rains have not yet stopped even though Gener is on its way out of the Philippine area of responsibility so I hope everyone would keep safe.
