What should i do with my house that im staying in , to prepare ?
Close windows and stay away from them ( In case wind broke them )
If you think that your house is in danger ... Then you have to find a local shelter - the closest one .
Stay high up the grounds and if you need , then move EARLY to the shelter , do not wait.
Make sure that there is no debris around the house ( so if the winds are strong it would not fly ) and check for paths to be free in case of really strongs floods ..
Where is the shelter in Boracay ?
= Balabal national high school and elementary school ,
=cockfight arena ,
=balabag parish church ,
=manoc manoc elementary school
How do i know when to go to the shelter ?
If local goverment advises to evacuate or if your house does not feel safe .
How do i get warning to evacuate ?
Radio( They would have a message for public )
Cell phone ( message thats passed around , normally shared over , over again )
WHen was the last big typhoon in Boracay ?
Yolanda . 8 November 2013
Was there any injured ?
No injured , just slight damage , mostly on Balabog side .
Common damage when typhoon is in area ?
Roof is the first thing that would fly away ...
Then other is with the water ( Because of floods )
REMEMBER : IF THERE IS FLOODS , DONT WALK AROUND IN WATER , BECAUSE ELECTRICITY LINES MIGHT BE DOWN IN WATER AND YOU MIGHT GET ELECTRICUTED .
