Super Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) May Hit The Philippines

5 12 2014

Typhoon Hagupit is suspected to hit Philippines this Saturday, and will affect about 30 million residents.

The Typhoon which is also known as Ruby in the Philippines intensity was equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic or Eastern Pacific Ocean.

It is on course for the Eastern Samar province and the city of Tacloban which was badly hit by last year’s Typhoon Haiyan, is one of the places which might be hit by this coming typhoon .

Even though Typhoon Hagupit is not as powerful as Haiyan it is still very dangerous as it will cause heavy rain, storm surges and landslides.

In fact BBC News reported that Typhoon Hagupit could bring storm surges up to one storey-high.

On Saturday, 6th August, 2011, there was a riot in Tottenham, London.

The riot then spread to other parts of Britain.

The riots are bad because people use violence, they steal other people’s things, they burn and damage buildings and cars.

Rioters should stop rioting and using violence to get what they want, damaging buildings, stealing and hurting other people.

This disaster has to be stopped.

We should all work hard to heal the world and stop destroying our planet.
