Summer’s extreme heat is officially over as El Nina kicks in bringing heavy rains already in the middle of May. And, government agencies prepare already for the drawbacks of heavy rains once typhoons and storms fill the rest of the months. A number of Filipinos had endured and died from the onslaught of Ondoy and Pepeng last year and I am quite sure that they haven’t recovered yet.
Normally, rainy days fill between June and August, and those whose schools are made of dilapidated materials, they can only anticipate flood and rooms’ rain pour again. Some affected schools have to be closed down for several days until the water can fully subside.
And, those students and teachers who don’t have the luxury of 4 – wheel transportations can only soak in dripping uniforms.
I hope the schools can have their classrooms repaired before rainy days can come in full bloom.
