Tropical storm Florita is the 6th typhoon that entered the Philippines this year. I’m letting you know about this storm because it’s really strong. It’s causing a lot of rainfall in most of Luzon, increasing the risk for landslides and flooding.

In case you don’t know Philippines geography (I’m still learning) Luzon is the big island in the Philippines.  Manila, Quezon City, Caloocan, Makati, and a lot of other big cities are on Luzon. Most of them are having flooding.


It’s so strong that the Philippine government canceled work and classes along the storm’s path. They also issued a storm warning, banning passenger boats and fishing vessels from going to sea.

If you have OFS in Luzon, you may want to check on them. If you have OFS in Visayas or Mindanao, they should be okay.
