Tropical storm “Jolina”
Do we really have to name the tropical storm “Jolina”???
Jolina is the tenth tropical cyclone to enter the country this year and the fourth weather disturbance in July. PAGASA is warning residents of Panay Island, Negros, Zamboanga Peninsula, Mindoro, Zambales, Bataan, Pangasinan, Palawan, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal and Quezon against possible flashfloods and landslides. Actually, Antipolo City, Rizal already reported a landslide yesterday. I do pray people will heed the warning and transfer to safer grounds even for the duration of this storm.
Anyway, it just baffles me why PAGASA is naming the storms this way. I think they want to be funny and relevant? But the celebrity with the same name is already a has-been, right?
