    Saw the devastation caused in northern Luzon on the TV but luckily it is now heading away from the Philippines to south China and Hong Kong. Should hear some interesting stories from my son in HK in a few days.

    Thanks for the concern guys... Im from Pampanga and my province is not as hardly hit as
    those that are in far north. But based on the pummeling that we've got, I bet thats
    nothing compared to those provinces that are in direct path of the storm.

    The last I heard is that the storm had become “quasi-stationary” over the South China Sea as it moved away from the Philippine area of responsibility because of the two high-pressure areas northwest of the archipelago in the vicinity of China. This is kind of scary because there is always a possibility that it could make a come back.

    Anyway Yew, by the time the storm hits land in HK, hopefully it should have weakened after having been slowed down by the Philippines.

    The Philippines historically has always been in the "first line of fire" whenever storms brew up in the Pacific ocean. We have always been the first line of defense for most other SE asian countries like HK and Taiwan since Philippines lies along the edge of the Pacific ocean.

    Though it still is a wonder that despite all the storms that hit the country and destroy and fell forest trees in the natural habit, that there are still plenty of native orchids that are found in situ intact specially in the Nueva Vizcaya-Quezon sierra madre mountainous areas.
