Super Typhoon Pablo update: Typhoon gaining strength; Southern Cebu now under Storm Signal No.2

3 Dec

Super Typhoon Pablo has regained some strength as it makes it way towards the Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental area.  Pablo is expected to make landfall Tuesday morning and it is expected to cross North Central Mindanao like Typhoon Sendong.   Pablo has 3 times stronger winds than Sendong which devastated some key areas in Northern Mindanao including Cagayan de Oro City last year.

Thirteen provinces in Mindanao are now under Storm Signal No.3 based on PAGASA’s latest weather bulletin issued at 6 pm Monday evening. Southern Cebu is now under Storm Signal No.2 along with Bohol, Negros Oriental, Siquijor, Southern Leyte and several provinces in Mindanao.   The rest of Cebu is still under signal No.1.  Residents in the affected areas are advised to continue monitoring the situation.

Based on some tracking sites, Pablo will continue its west-northwest course and it will make landfall in the eastern portion of Mindanao and it will cross the north central part of Mindanao before exiting near Cagayan de Oro. There is a big possibility now that the typhoon will not make landfall in Cebu.  Residents, however, are still warned the typhoon carries strong winds and if it does not make landfall in their provinces, Pablo can still do major damage to structures.
