Typhoons are great inconveniences especially if you are traveling. Typhoons have the ability to paralyze most of human activities and people have no choice but to bow down to the might of these weather disturbances. I experienced one great hassle caused by a typhoon when I visited Cebu last week.
My timing is wrong when I visited Cebu last week because it coincided at the time when Typhoon Ramon is entering the Philippines. I just discovered my wrong decision when I reached Danao City pier. I found out that no vessels are allowed to travel from Danao City to Camotes Islands because of the Typhoon Ramon. Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) personnel in the area said that Typhoon Signal Number 1 was raised over Camotes Island. Vessels are prohibited from traveling once a typhoon signal a raised.

I can’t accept the fact that no vessels are allowed to travel because there are no strong winds. The sea is somewhat calm even though there is a typhoon. The decision of PCG, however, is understandable because the agency is always blamed whenever there is a sea accident. Prohibiting the vessels to sail is a wise decision on the part of PCG. The only problem is that it is a hassle for passengers, some of whom were forced to sleep in the port terminal.

My travel schedule was affected because of Typhoon Ramon. I have no choice but to stay in Danao City until the typhoon is gone. My only consolation is that I am safe even though Typhoon Ramon is at a rampage. So, instead of getting too disappointed, I decided to have a stroll around Danao City.
