This is exactly why you shouldn't take out the car during a storm

Best to stay off the road

Typhoon Glenda

There's a reason our government issues warnings whenever a strong typhoon is approaching, and that's to encourage us to stay inside the safety of our homes. Because when you venture outside your house while a violent storm is wreaking havoc in your area, you're practically exposing yourself--and your car--to unpredictable risks.

But then some of us probably think: "Nah, it's okay. My route or destination is safe, without trees to possibly fall on my car."

Thing is, when a typhoon is raging--like Glenda did today--we never know what might fly or sail above us. In these photos, various makeshift structures are seen pinning down cars, whose owners probably had to go to work today and had nowhere else to park. Still, the lesson remains: Do not gamble with your or your car's safety by driving through a mega storm.

If you must really drive during a typhoon, make sure not to leave your car outside. Because there's a really good chance you'll go back to it sporting a completely different shape.
