while riding a ferry boat
from Cebu City to the nearby Mactan Island -
every passenger young and old
was wearing a life jacket!
inside the Philippine Area Of Responsibility

The city is experiencing strong winds
and the waves in the sea
are higher than normal.

but passengers are required
to wear life jackets the whole time.

and it's very light
as if there's nothing on me.
But I trust this can lift
my whole weight up
and make me float in the sea.
is not making landfall
anywhere in the country
but still is causing floods
in some areas.
the local government of the city
is doing this disaster-preparedness

and it feels safe in the sea.
This is a good thing to do
in dealing with looming disasters
Here's the short video below.
