Aquino administration--impressive so far in handling Typhoon Ruby

This early, I'm impressed with the way government is handling the pre-disaster preparedness stage in response to the possible dire effects of supertyphoon Ruby. I believe several of our government officials have learned already and are pro-active in terms of response now.

EASTERN SAMAR has already been hit and everything, according to reports are down there. Pagasa expects Ruby to bring tremendous rains today in the National Capital Region (NCR). This typhoon packs very strong winds and lots of rains.

Government suspended work and classes today but fell short though of declaring private work suspended. Private firms should suspend work today to allow everybody to be prepared. The frickle-ness of this typhoon is contributing to its lethal-ness. Pagasa admits that they are beginning to see it difficult to predict when and how this typhoon would behave and move.

Be safe everyone.
