Super Typhoon Maysak Threatens to Ruin Holy Week plans of Filipinos

31 Mar

The Holy Week is one of the most important holidays of Filipinos.  Many Filipinos travel to different part of the country to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Since it is a 4-day weekend, a lot of folks take advantage of the break to get a much needed vacation.  It is also the start of summer break of the schools in the country and many college students flock to beaches like Boracay, Puerto Galera, and Bantayan, Cebu where popular beach parties are held.  A rare summer Super Typhoon has formed in the Pacific and there is a big chance that it will make landfall in some part of the country. Super Typhoon Maysak is currently at the vicinity of Yap islands.  It is forecasted to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on the afternoon of Holy Thursday. It will be renamed Bagyong Chedeng once it enters the Philippines.
