Thank God there was no rain last night. Rains the previous week caused flashfloods in the city. Last night as Typhoon “Frank” (Fengshen) crossed the Visayas from western Pacific, strong winds swept through Davao.
This must be part of what they call as tail winds.
Davao is located in a typhoon-free zone. However, the winds last night were the strongest I ever experienced in five decades. No rain, just blast and blast of gusty wind the whole evening. It started to calm down now as the sun started to rise.
Here’s the latest satellite pic on Typhoon “Frank” from the weather bureau showing it packed winds of 140-170 kilometers per hour.
