9 Tropical Storms worldwide all happening at the same time
As I was busy scrolling down my news feed both on Twitter and Facebook I stumbled upon the image below. Apparently there are currently 9 Tropical Storms happening at the same time worldwide, each of which has the potential to wreak havoc in its path.

The strongest among the nine is Super Typhoon Mangkhut which is unfortunately heading towards my country Philippines. Mangkhut's strength is now equivalent to a Category Level 5 hurricane in the west and is currently the strongest storm this year 2018.
Although the storm won't directly hit our place, I am still a little worried about our neighbouring provinces. The last storm of that magnitude to hit the Philippines left our province with no source of electricity for weeks.
Well be safe everyone!
