Philippines Braces for Possible 'Super Typhoon'

Ad Feedback

Several days after the devastation of Typhoon Ketsana, the Philippines are bracing for yet another major storm.

Emergency response teams are preparing evacuation plans as they track Typhoon Parma. 
The new storm headed towards the already flooded country, with winds gusting up to 130 miles per hour.

Already traumatized residents are dreading the arrival of the new storm.

"We've been hit so hard. The situation now is just so difficult and I don't know if we can take some more, another calamity," said Ketsana survivor Glen Juban, whose family was swept off the roof of their home Saturday by floodwaters. His wife and 13-year-old son survived, but his 4-year-old daughter drowned.

Parma could be even more powerful than Ketsana, which hit the Philippines Saturday, flooding more than 2 million homes in Manila. 

"We are dealing with a very strong typhoon (and) there is a big possibility that this typhoon will gather more strength," Nathaniel Cruz, the Philippines' chief weather forecaster, said of Parma. "Let us all pray." 

Cruz is predicting that Parma could strengthen into a super typhoon.
Massive clean-up efforts are underway and relief is desperately needed.
