The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Ludy Alviar. She gets the award for the following.
The Philippines will get two typhoons in August, the state weather bureau told reporters on Thursday, saying it was a lucky news for alleviating the dry spell in a supposedly rainy season.Typhoons are never a lucky experience for the Philippine people. They bring death and destruction to a country where most people live in poverty. Alviar must live in some kind of scientist dream world, because I can't understand how she doesn't understand what typhoons do to the country she lives in. I do, and I only spent a few years living in the country twenty years ago. That experience taught me plenty.
This was less than four typhoons previously forecast to hit in August, Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) senior forecaster Ludy Alviar said.
"There is a high-pressure area in our territory and it prevents the low-pressure areas that generate typhoons from forming. We are just hoping we'll be lucky enough to get two storms in August," Alviar said in an interview on Manila's dzBB radio.
Alviar said the Philippines was initially expected to experience three typhoons in July, but none of these weather disturbances passed through any part of the Philippines.
For mistaking mayhem for good news, Ludy Alviar is today's Knucklehead of the Day.
