Super Typhoon Yolanda Recap

8 Nov

The worst over for the Philippines as Super Typhoon Yolanda (international code: Haiyan) came earlier than expected and exited faster than expected. The rapid acceleration of super typhoon helped minimize what could have been catastrophic damages in several areas in the country. The typhoon did extensive damage but it was mostly limited to areas where it made landfall. Early preparations were also a key in reducing the of life caused by the Category 5 typhoon.

Here is the recap of the hourly tracking made by the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration:

The typhoon is currently crossing the Leyte Island.  It is expected to pass through Northern Cebu then Panay (Ilo-ilo, Aklan, Capiz), Romblon, Semirara Island, Southern Mindoro, then Busuanga. Yolanda (Haiyan) is expected to be out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Saturday afternoon.

From US Navy

It is already raining hard in Cebu and you can feel the winds already.  Everyone in the areas with Storm Signals are advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods, landslides, and destruction of property. Super Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda is strongest typhoon since Typhoon Tip (Warling) in 1979.   Based on Typhoon2000.ph analysis, Yolanda packs winds up to 315 kph near the center although PAGASA’s analysis have it at 245 kph with gustiness up to 275 kph.  Nevertheless, those winds speeds are unheard of by this current generation as there was no typhoon in recent memory with those wind speeds and making landfall somewhere in the country.

Stay safe, everyone!

Cebuanos are strongly advised to heed the warning signals of PAGASA even if they are experiencing relatively calm weather. Super Tyhoon Yolanda (International code: Haiyan) is the strongest typhoon in the world this year and people should not take that fact for granted. Winds of over 200 kph could uproot trees and cause catastrophic damage in structures. The brunt the typhoon will only arrive tomorrow and residents are advised not to go out of their houses unless it is very important.  People in living unsafe structures or in landslide or flashflood-prone areas are advised to go to designated evacuation centers or seek shelter with relatives in safer areas. Signal No.3 is declared as a precaution since PAGASA’s weather bulletin only comes once every six hours.

As of 6 pm, Super Typhoon Yolanda is tracked at 453 km Southeast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar.  It is moving West Northwest at a speed of 37 kph.  It is expected to make landfall somewhere between Samar and Leyte before noontime tomorrow.

Stores selling flashlights, emergency lamps and batteries were experiencing brisk sales. Flashlights were sold out in many stores in the city. One good place to buy these products would be on hardware stores like Handyman and Ace Hardware.

image

A lot people are listening intently to news. Many were keenly listening to local broadcaster Leo Lastimosa when he had a live broadcast in the Ayala Center Cebu. The shoppers were very interested in knowing the updates of the Super Typhoon.

Classes for tomorrow and Friday have been suspended. Employees are advised to contact their employers about work suspension. As a precaution, Cebu City mayor Mike Rama had ordered all barangay health centers to be open 24 hours a day. Lapu-Lapu City mayor Paz Radaza cancelled the classes on all public schools in Lapu-Lapu City to prepare the schools as potential evacuation centers should the need arises.

This blog will continue to monitor this ferocious weather disturbance.

 

 

Typhoon Watch: Wilma makes landfall in Central Visayas; Stronger Typhoon coming later this week

4 Nov

Just weeks after a violent earthquake struck the region, a tropical depression made landfall in Bohol-Cebu-Negros area.  TD Wilma caused flashfloods in several areas in Bohol including Sagbayan, the epicenter of the Oct. 15 earthquake.  Wilma has weakened after passing through the region but it is expected to intensify once it traverses the Sulu Sea before exiting the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

Current Active Track of weather disturbance in PAR:

Active Typhoon track in the PAR (from typhoon2000.ph)

As Wilma exits the country, a stronger typhoon is on its way. Tropical Storm with international code Haiyan is currently tracked in Western Micronesia.  It is currently moving at 28 km/h at a WNW direction. It currently has Maximum Sustained Winds of 85 km/h.  It is expected to intensify as its moves over the Western Pacific Ocean going towards the Philippines. Haiyan is expected to be a full blown typhoon by tomorrow and there is a chance that it will develop into a super typhoon with winds over 200 km/h by late Wednesday.  If it continues it current predicted path, Haiyan will be called Bagyong Yolanda once it enters the Philippine Area of Responsibiliy. Possible landfall will be on Friday,  November 8 in the Leyte-Samar areas and it will affect the Visayas, Bicol Region, and Southern Luzon.  Residents of these areas are advised to monitor the typhoon and be ready for the Public Storm Warnings from PAGASA.
