Why Milenyo? Why strike now?

While Mindanao and Davao City in particular enjoyed sunny days (with cloudy hours of course) this week, the rest of the country suffered the wrath of typhoon Milenyo. According to the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) it wrecked havoc and damaged at least P134 million worth of infrastructure, agriculture and private property! What! Read the story here. OCD also was cited to have reported in the story that it displaced at least 61,000 people around the country. What about how many animals were displaced?

Yes, it might have solved the dengue problem with the Department of Health and other health and local government stakeholders “saved by the bell” but Milenyo brought more damage than smiles.  Read the dengue good news here.

I hope Milenyo did not start a streak of typhoons that could bring hell knows what damages. God have mercy!
