Possible Typhoon on Christmas Day
MANILA, Philippines—A tropical cyclone is seen to possibly enter the Philippines on Christmas Day, particularly the Visayas and Mindanao areas—the same places badly hit by super typhoon Pablo this month.
According to recent reports, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has been continuously monitoring the possible tropical cyclone developing in the next five days.
In the meantime, the weather bureau said that cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers or thunderstorms will prevail over Visayas and Mindanao. Cagayan Valley, Bicol Region as well as the provinces of Aurora and Quezon will also have cloudy skies with light rain. Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience partly cloudy skies with brief rainshowers or thunderstorms.
PAGASA also warned small fishing boats or seacraft in Luzon and Eastern Visayas not to venture out into the sea where big waves are being generated by the northeast monsoon.
Recall that Pablo, considered the strongest typhoon that hit the country this year, left over a thousand people dead as well as thousands of homeless and displaced families.
