The Philippines was hit by Typhoon Ulysses the other day, November 12. It was a terrible weather disturbance because of the strong winds and heavy rains. Our mango tree was felled and there's no way it can recover. In our village I had counted more than 10 big trees that were felled and that excludes small trees and banana plants. Now I am thinking of how we can prevent such destruction. Or is nature really hard to control?
