Typhoon Ruby (international name: Hagupit) is the 18th typhoon to enter the Philippines this 2014, and it will, unfortunately, bear down on many of the areas that Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) destroyed just one year ago. Most of which still have not even recovered fully yet.
Although Typhoon Ruby is not as strong as Yolanda, it still packs some mighty winds and it is powerful enough to create storm surge that can reach up to 4 meters. Weather experts say it will make at least six landfalls starting over Dolores, Eastern Samar on Saturday. Hopefully, the local and national government, as well as the people are more prepared this time around. Stay strong, Visayas!
