Stars take to social media during #GlendaPH
MANILA, Philippines – While the Philippines faced Typhoon Glenda (international name Rammasun), some celebrities took to their social media accounts to monitor the storm.
The social media posts ranged from updates on power outage, to safety reminders, to prayers offered for recovery after the storm. Others simply asked fans to be cautious and keep safe, while others shared photos of what the damage looked like near their location.
Singer Jessie J, who recently performed for the Manila audience on July 14, posted a positive message for her Filipino fans.
YouTube star Bogart the Explorer posted a reminder about using hash tags responsibly, while Anne Curtis posted a list of hashtags posted by Rappler as a reminder for those who might want to use them.
Actress Angel Locsin took a video of the situation on the streets, while TV host Kris Aquino posted a photo of prayer for the country.
Below is a quick look at what they posted:
"My prayers and thoughts are with everyone in Manila right now! I pray the storm passes quickly and no more people are hurt."
"As of 8:15am. kumalma na si #glenda ngayon :) kawawa naman yung mga nasa labas.." she wrote
"Hashtags to remember to stay updated or give reports from @rappler"
"I was looking for a prayer to share with all & came across this painting HEAL OUR LAND by Joey Velasco. God bless the Philippines. God bless & protect us all. Good Night."

"Nope, this ain't an evacuation tent, nor a refugee station. This is what we call a "standby area" for performers in our industry. Yes, as gloomy and dangerous as it seems, we are still committed to work, to be able to provide our audience with the expected exciting weeknight contents. Hoping for quick recovery to those who were affected by #glendaPH . Carry on! #AngDalawangMrsReal"
