Kapag sinabing STORM SURGE of 6 meters. Ang ibig sabihin nun ang tubig sa dagat ay tataas ng dalawang palapag ibig sabihin. Kung Single storey ang bahay mo lumikas ka na.... kahit sabihin na two storey ang bahay mo at gawa sa concrete wala itong laban sa lakas ng agos ng Tubig. Isalin sa Filipino ang salitang Storm SURGE. Masidhing Pagtaas ng Tubig Dagat na Aabot Hangang Ikalawang Palapag ng Bahay Ninyo at KAILANGAN LUMIKAS.

ITS TOO LATE TO BLAME MALACANANG, that they should have issued force evacuation to higher grounds. ITS TOO LATE TO BLAME LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS Unit that they evacuated people to school near the sea, just to see more elderly and children drown inside the evacuation school, they should have identified or prepared in advance safe high areas. ITS TOO LATE TO BLAME PEOPLE, why they choose to remain at the comfort of their home because they have concrete houses and they fear that they will lost their valuables. ITS TOO LATE TO BLAME US, because we always choose to wait and see, and we will only moved when the calamity is upon us.
Tacloban Vicinity
BASED on the Picture, there are no where to go in downtown TACLOBAN, it is surrounded by sea. The most common sense dictates is to move people to the nearest HIGHEST GROUNDS, leave your houses and hotels. Our life is more important than our properties.
SA GITNA NG KALAMIDAD LUMALABAS ANG KABUTIHAN NG TAO, sa quezon landslide, sa bohol, sa compostela, sa baguio, at maraming lugar na nasalanta. HINDI tayo magnanakaw, MAHIRAP man tayo at NAMATAYAN man tayo, PERO buo pa rin ang PAGKATAO natin, MABUTING TAO at HINDI Magnanakaw. Ilang beses ko din naranasan mabagyo, magiba ang bahay, malandslide nung bata pa ako, pero lahat ng tao nagtulongan at di nagnanakaw. HINDI PA HULI ANG LAHAT. Kaya natin ito... Tayong mga Filipino ay MATATAG. Di magigiba ang ating pagkatao. DI magigiba ang kabutihan sa puso natin.

Wilma Yolanda and LPA v2
ITS NEVER TOO LATE. We FILIPINOS MUST change our cultural thinking and MORAL thinking WE NEED TO CHANGE our OLD WAYS, LETS US ALWAYS have in our mind and HEART this saying "BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY". STOP BLAMING PAGASA, na hindi naman makas ang bagyo sabi nyo signal #3 at #4 pero may araw naman. LETS US always be prepared kung hindi man dumating ang malakas na bagyo SALAMAT, pero at least it should start from us to BECOME always prepared.

LETS US MOVE FORWARD, remove all the PORK BARREL, move all the pork barrel budget to CREATE a NEW DEPARTMENT, "DEPARTMENT of PEACE and SAFETY", and YES NAKAKATAWA man ang pangalan ng DEPARTMENT PERO TOTOO, at ako ang unang-una mag vovolunter kahit WALANG BAYAD to become the 1st Head, at dapat ay may POLITICAL IMMUNITY, Walang POLITICAL APPOINTMENT to avoid corruption and Abuse of POWER, IT WILL WORK like PRIVATE CORPORATION. We need to be more prepared, during natural calamity and man made disaster like in Tacloban, Bohol and Zamboanga. The FIRST Action PLAN to identify and create safe evacuation sites in each municipality. Not just school, because even our school are made of substandard material, not just gymnasium that are made of basketball court material where people cannot even have a peaceful sleep where every bench bears the name of the incumbent politicians, not field that will be flooded and it will cause more misery to people.
Super Typhoon Yolanda

WE NEED TO HAVE SAFE and PEACEFUL evacuation areas, have yearly drill in every barangay and municipality. It should be done in the barangay level not on the Governor LEVEL, where photo ops happen and other barangay are left off. WE HAVE mountainous barangay where don't even have access to radio.
2nd ACTION PLAN is to have better equipment such as ground propagation mobile communication systems, have three tier systems. More Aerial Rescue Equipment. MORe rescue equipment for those trap. We are spending to much money buying 2nd hand helicopter and boat, where in fact we can manufacture our own.
WE FILIPINOS SHOULD STOP POLITICKING AND START HELPING EVERYONE AND BECOME MORE AWARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT.
WE SHOULD NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN THE GOODNESS OF PEOPLE.
STOP HAVING FEAR IN OUR HEART, LETS US START HAVING FAITH IN OUR HUMANITY

Salamat po. Ang pinoy talagang matiyaga. It is very frustrating lang kasi to see many people lost their lives. Where in fact with all the money we have, we could have SAVE more Lives.
