Filipinos braced themselves as the strongest typhoon in the Philippines entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility earlier this week. Weather forecasters said that Typhoon Ompong would be a stronger typhoon compared to Yolanda.
When the typhoon made it to the land area of the country, Filipinos felt its onslaught particularly in Northern Luzon as floods were triggered and landslide incidents occurred.
It is not only in the Northern Luzon that people felt the heavy rains and strong winds of Ompong. In a video uploaded in GMA News YouScooper, a man was seen fighting the strong winds while crossing the street in Metro Manila.
According to YouScooper Russell Ricarte, the unidentified man was trying to cross the street at Cyberpark Tower, Cubao at around 5:30 A.M. However, the strong wind blowing against him was trying to prevent him from crossing.
At first, it looks non-threatening but people were shocked on seeing the man thrown away by the strong air as he floated for a few seconds.
