Storm Surge and Yolanda lesson to learn

Storm Surge and Yolanda


Reading the news about storm surge and how people in affected areas  repeatedly says that it is a tsunami  makes me wonder , is technicality important in a would be catastrophe?   In a twitter post By Mahar Lagmay “Kung sinabi namin na may tsunami sa 100 sites, nagtakbuhan ang mga tao, at hindi nangyari, ano sasabihin ng tao?”  As per Mr. Mahar Lagmay, who heads the government weather information dissemination website Project Noah, the storm surge warning is accurate although people are unfamiliar within.

To be fair with PAGASA the forecast is accurate but everyone was overwhelmed with the power of the storm. Everyone underestimated the storm.
