Typhoon Milenyo: Youtube videos
The views of the typhoon most people in Manila didnt get to see on youtube during the storm because of power outages. While most of us stayed glued to radio reports. Those lucky enough to have had a web connection were able to watch these views – some posted almost as soon at they happened.
I n total some 71 people died in the this storm as of reports this saturday afternoon coming out of areas around the metropolis. Even today many parts of the capitol don’t still have power yet.
One strong point – was the 3G wireless networks which for SMART telecom allowed a lot us with web enabled phones in those areas where the twoers had adequete emergency power to stay online.
The weather was tough on parked cars – many suffered damage from falling tree limbs and power lines as well other windborn objects.
These gals – meanwhile – seemed to be enjoying the filming of the storm from inside a dorm or office building of some kind. At least they were high and dry.
The storm was pretty heavy in many areas – a few more videos show the effects from many places in the area.
