PAGASA warns of typhoon similar to "Lawin" this Oct
by PIA release

The Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CRDRRMC) called on Cordillerans to prepare for a Lawin-like typhoon in October.

Pagasa Baguio weather specialist Danny Galati reported during the third quarter CRDRRMC meeting that the weather bureau is monitoring a weather disturbance which could possibly develop into another super typhoon and hit the country.

Galati said that based on their latest weather observance, a Low Pressure Area (LPA) along the Marianas Islands is likely to intensify into a category 5 tropical cyclone equivalent to super typhoon which is possible to enter the Philippines first week of October.

Based on the tropical cyclone forecast of Pagasa, at least two tropical cyclones are expected to hit the country this month and at least four more from November to December.  

Galati added that the track of the weather disturbance is yet to be forecast, given its distance from the Philippines, but the weather bureau is already alerting the public and local DRRMCs against possible heavy rains and strong winds in the coming weeks.

“While it is still outside PAR (Philippine Are of Responsibility), the chances for it to  intensify and develop into a super typhoon are high. Although we cannot control the coming of cyclones in our country, at least we can mitigate its potential impacts,” he said.

Galati said that the weather outlook is issued not to scare the public, but to let everybody including the different government agencies and local government units prepare for the worst case scenario in the coming weeks.

Rene Valera of the Department of the Interior and Local Government asked Pagasa and the CRDRRMC to furnish copies of the weather outlook to the different member agencies and the local government units.

Super Typhoon Lawin, the third most intense tropical cyclone in the world in 2016, battered Northern Luzon and left the Cordillera with 16 dead, four injured, and one mising and 119,134 families or 526,758 individuals affected.

It also left more than P6 billion damage in infrastructure and agriculture.
