Tropical Depression Caloy Over the Southern Philippines

- WxPacWx

Rainfall Outlook

Rainfall Outlook

“Tropical Depression Caloy was named Friday morning by PAGASA following a night of organization and intensification from the

TD Caloy

low pressure center in the Philippine Sea.

Despite this storm being branded a name (the third PAGASA named storm already in 2014) the forecast has changed very little from what we have been discussing all week.

Expect the low to come ashore in Northern Mindanao throughout the weekend but based on IR satellite imagery a unskilled observer might think Visayas is seeing landfall.

That is because of the large moisture inflow in to the storm along Caloys northern Periphery. This will mean the highest risk areas for flooding, landslides and high winds will be north of the storms track in the areas displayed in red blow.

Caloy1 Click the Link for a Full Bulletin Update

Futhermore gale force winds are anticipated up and down the eastern seaboards of the Philippines this coming weekend. Not directly associated with Caloy though but associated with Caloys interaction with a ridging high pressure area pushing in out of China. This is producing a “high gradient induced wind field”. Winds sustained up and down the coastline are likely to be around 50kph. Even in Manila farther north expect breezy conditions this weekend.

Impacts

Impacts

The rain will be the larger impact though from the storm though. Some areas as much as 500mm could fall with generally 100-200mm in the forecast. As mentioned before there is a risk of flooding and landslides in these conditions. Residents in low lying areas and near large rivers should take extra caution with this weekend as persistent rains push on shore.

The video update below is a whole 1 minute long, why? Because my internet cut out and never came back on. So you got what you got right there…

“The tropical low pressure area centered just east of the southern Philippines appeared more organized on visible imagery from NASA’s Aqua satellite on March 21. System 94W appears to be developing and the Philippine authorities have already issued warnings on the system locally designated as “Caloy.”

The MODIS instrument (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) that flies aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite captured a visible image of System 94W coming together east of the southern Philippines on March 21 at 5:25 UTC/1:25 a.m. EDT. The image revealed a circulation with the center over the open waters of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. The image showed bands of thunderstorms from System 94W’s western quadrant was draped over the eastern Mindanao region (southern area) of the Philippines and bands of thunderstorms from the storm were over the waters of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean.

Warnings were posted by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on March 21 at 5 p.m. Signal No. 1 is in effect for parts of the Visayas and Mindanao regions of the Philippines today, March 21.

Signal No. 1 means that sustained winds of 18.6-37.2 mph/30-60 kph may be expected in at least 36 hours. In Visayas, those areas under Signal No. 1 include: Southern Leyte, Bohol, Siquijor, Southern Cebu, the southern part of Negros Occidental and the southern part of Negros Oriental.

In Mindanao, Signal No. 1 is in effect for Southern Leyte, Bohol, Siquijor, Southern Cebu, the southern part of Negros Occidental, and the southern part of Negros Oriental. For additional updates from PAGASA, please visit: http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph//

On March 21 at 5 p.m. local time, PAGASA noted that the center of System 94W was located near 8.9 north latitude and 127.8 east longitude, about 310 km/192.6 miles northeast of Davao City or at 170 km/105.6 miles East Northeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center gives System 94W a high chance for developing into a tropical depression in the next day. Meanwhile, PAGASA expects the low to move to the west-northwest over the next couple of days and cross the southern Philippines.” -

File photo from NOAA/EPA

“MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said on Saturday, February 1, that 3,698 families or 18,518 persons were displaced by Tropical Storm Basyang (Kajiki).

Evacuees fled to 74 evacuation centers in Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, and the Caraga region, the agency said in its Saturday morning report.

Basyang weakened into a tropical depression as of 11 am Saturday, state weather bureau PAGASA said, with only 10 remaining areas under storm signal no. 1.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development already prepositioned P104.30 million for emergency relief resources, which include standby funds (P54.91 million), 48,044 famliy food packs (P11.67 million), and other food and non-food items (P37.72 million).

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) also suspended sea trips in all ports in Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental and Siquijor. A total of 9,541 passengers were reportedly stranded.

Meanwhile, at least 45 flights have been cancelled since Friday evening, January 31. (READ: Cancelled flights: Saturday, February 1)

Tent cities, hospitals

In Cebu, Saturday classes in all levels have been suspended. The provincial DRRMC said residents living in the tent city at South Road Properties evacuated at the Department of Engineering and Public Works building.

The tent city houses survivors of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) who fled Tacoban and other parts of Eastern Visayas. The worlds most powerful typhoon flattened entire towns and cities, and left million homeless when it hit the Visayas on Nov 8, 2013.

Pre-emptive evacuations before Basyang were also done for at least 550 families in Cebu.

In Bohol’s Loon Hospital, 2 ambulances, 7 medics and 1 generator set were sent to assist in the evacuation of patients who are currently staying in tent hospitals.

Loon Hospital is one of the 14 hospitals in the province that were damaged by the 7.2-magnitude earthquake last October 2013. (READ: New hospitals to rise in Bohol after quake)

The tropical depression is expected to to be either 521 km northwest of Puerto Princesa City or outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Sunday morning.” Jee Geronimo/Rappler.com

Haiyan Recovery and a Tropical Depression Landfall in Vietnam Thursday Night Update (Extract)

(G: Have extracted that which relates to Vietnam, for full update go here)

 

Published on November 14, 2013 by

// Westernpacificweather

Tropical Depression Zoraida continues to track west towards Vietnam tonight with a likely landfall on Friday in southern Vietnam.

To call this area of un-organized cloud cover a Tropical System though is kind of a stretch. Regardless of it being dubbed or named a storm though it already has and will continue to bring drenching rain showers for communities south of Hue Vietnam and extending in to Cambodia in to the Weekend.

 

There is the risk of flooding from this storm. Already 50mm has been reported in some out lying islands from the mainland of Vietnam but, it will be nothing compare to the veracity Haiyan brought when it skirted the coastline last week killing 12 people in Vietnam.

Crising kills 1, hurts 2

sunstar.com.ph Tuesday, February 19, 2013

MANILA (Updated) At least one was reported killed while two others were injured due to heavy rains brought by Tropical Depression Crising, according to the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) on Tuesday.

OCD-Davao Region head Lisa Mazo identified the fatality as Francisco Digaynon Jr., who drowned while crossing the Taytayan river in Barangay Andap, New Bataan, Compostela Valley.

Maria Nacua, 20, and Dodong Nacua, 8, were injured after a landslide triggered by Crising destroyed their house in Lanao del Sur.

The two were brought to the Lanao del Norte Provincial Hospital in Kapatagan for medical treatment, said the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

The tropical depression was located at 80 kilometers (km) southwest of General Santos City by 4 p.m. Tuesday. It is moving west northwest at 24 kilometers per hour (kph) with maximum winds of 45 kph near the center, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

At least 23 areas have been placed under storm signal number 1. These are Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Samal Island, Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley, southern part of Surigao del Sur, Agusan del Sur, Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, North Cotabato, Maguindanao, Sultan Kudarat, South Cotabato, Sarangani, Misamis Occidental, Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, Zamboanga Sibugay, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, and Southern Palawan.

Pagasa said Crising made landfall over the southern tip of Davao del Sur Tuesday.

The tropical depression is expected to be at 250 kms west of Zamboanga City by Wednesday afternoon, and 500 kms southwest of Puerto Princesa City in Palawan by Thursday afternoon.

Pagasa said Crising still brings estimated five to 15 millimeters of rainfall per hour within its 300 km diameter. Residents living in low lying and mountainous areas under public storm warning signal number 1 are alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides.

Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are still advised not to venture out into the northern, eastern and southern seaboards of Luzon and Central and Eastern seaboards of Visayas and eastern seaboard of Mindanao. (Sunnex/With reports from PNA) sunstar.com.ph

Typhoon Bopha Dies

Published on December 9, 2012 by

Typhoon Bopha is now more today after it weaned out in intensity just off the west coast of Luzon. A number of facts caused this sudden decrease in intensity the more important being the dramatic increase in vertical wind shear over the storm system.

Still storms will pop up across the country but now mainly due to diurnal heating and these thunderstorms should mainly be in the afternoon hours. Farther south in to Malaysia�on the other hand your still seeing persistent showers with the North East Monsoon.”

Filipino:

Typhoon Bopha na ngayon ang higit pang ngayon pagkatapos awat ito sa intensity sa labas lamang sa kanlurang baybayin ng Luzon. Ang isang bilang ng mga katotohanan sanhi ang biglaang pagbaba sa intensity mas mahalaga ang napakalaking pagtaas sa vertical hangin paggugupit sa sistema ng bagyo.

Pa rin bagyo ay pop up sa buong bansa ngunit ngayon ay pangunahing dahil ng araw heating at mga thunderstorm dapat pangunahin sa ang oras ng hapon. Mas malayo timog sa Malaysia sa kabilang banda iyong nakakakita pa rin ng mga paulit-ulit na shower na may North East Monsoon. “

Typhoon Bopha / Pablo Raw Footage From Koror Palau. Shot on 2nd and 3rd December 2012 by James Reynolds:

Northern Mindanao in the Philippines is where the storm will be effecting next, here conditions will rapidly go down hill Tuesday afternoon as the storm slams in to the island. Model agreement is rather high at this point with a landfall south of Sairgao yet slight changes to the north and to the south very well can occur. Another threat will be rainfall here as totals up to 200-300mm will be adding up as the storm pushes through Visayas. In Cebu expect typhoon strength winds despite being father inland the fast moving storm will still be carrying destructive winds with it. In this update we dive in to who is most at risk and where the worst conditions will be.

Preparations are now underway in the southern Philippines ahead of the storm. The NDDRMC has called on 10,000 soldiers to help evacuating people from low lying areas and preparing structures for the oncoming storm. But always remember you can do your part by helping out your local area. Please do so and always continue to check back in with PAGASA the NDRRMC and JMA for the latest warnings and information.

Typhoon Bopha hits the Philippines at Cat 5 strength; at least 40 killed

Published: 5:00 PM GMT on December 04, 2012

Typhoon Bopha slammed ashore on the Philippine island of Mindanao at 4:45 am local time on Tuesday morning as a Category 5 storm with 160 mph winds. Bopha is the third Category 5 typhoon to affect the Western Pacific this year, and the strongest typhoon ever recorded to hit Mindanao, which rarely sees strong typhoons due to its position close to the Equator. The death toll from the powerful storm already stands at 40, and is expected to rise. While passage over land has weakened Bopha to a Category 2 storm, the tropical cyclone is spreading torrential rains over a large portion of the southern Philippine Islands, and this will cause serious flooding problems today. The island of Mindanao is highly vulnerable to flood disasters from tropical cyclones; last year’s Tropical Storm Washi, which hit Mindanao on December 16, 2011 with 60 mph winds and torrential rains, killed over 1500 people. Before hitting the Philippines, Typhoon Bopha brought a storm surge estimated at ten feet to the island nation of Palau, where near-total destruction is being reported in some coastal areas.

Bopha: the 2nd most southerly Category 5 typhoon on record
Bopha, a Cambodian word for flower or a girl, became a tropical depression unusually close to the Equator, at 3.6°N latitude. Tropical cyclones rarely form so close to the Equator, because they cannot leverage the Earth’s rotation to get themselves spinning. Bopha became the second most southerly Category 5 typhoon on Monday at 7.4°N latitude. The record is held by Typhoon Louise of 1964, which was a Category 5 storm at 7.3°N.

Aid Worker Diaries – Waiting for Pablo

Copied from: http://www.trust.org/alertnet/

By Matt Crook/Plan International

As Typhoon Bopha, known locally as Pablo, approaches the Philippines, we’re all asking ourselves the same questions: Where is it going? How bad will it hit? Are those communities as prepared as they could be for such a disaster?

To a certain extent, we can predict much of this. Satellite imagery means that we can track where Bopha has been, where it’s likely to go next and how powerful it is. At last check, it was a category 3 typhoon (although this can vary from source to source), which on a scale that goes up to five, means it’s packing quite a punch. Though it’s been downgraded from a super typhoon, it still has winds approaching 175kmh.

Bopha has always been on a collision course with the Philippines, but the path its been likely to take has shifted somewhat in the last day or so. At present, we think it’s going to enter through the eastern part of Mindanao at 6 am tomorrow and then onto Visayas. It’s currently about 600km away and moving about 20kmh, or thereabouts.

Reports on the Internet have varied in terms of what kind of destruction we can expect from Bopha. At the top end of the scale, there has been speculation that Bopha could wreak more havoc than Typhoon Sendong, which ravaged Mindanao last year, causing more than 1,200 deaths, with many more missing.

After Sendong smacked Mindanao (not an area we normally implement programmes), Plan launched an emergency response, providing relief kits for children and their families and setting up evacuation centres for some of the thousands of people whose homes were destroyed or damaged. In the longer term, we worked with our local partners to set up child-friendly spaces and provide psycho-social support to those struggling to come to terms with what happened.

The devastation on the island was immense, especially in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. The typhoon was also a wakeup call to the local authorities as many people were underprepared for such a natural disaster. Even now, almost one year on, there are still many living in evacuation centres.

Be prepared

Disaster preparedness is something we feel very strong about at Plan and in the areas where we implement programmes, we invest in it heavily. The idea is that communities take the lead in figuring out what hazards they are prone to, and then with the support of Plan and local partner organisations, the communities can work out how to prepare for a disaster and what to do when one strikes.

Children are obviously a huge part of this and we can’t emphasise enough the importance of children being empowered and involved in disaster risk reduction activities. Children are the most affected by disasters, so they simply can’t be ignored. They have a fundamental right to be part of decisions that affect their lives so they can understand what is happening and grow up with the kind of knowledge that can save lives.

We know that parts of Mindanao vary in terms of how well they can cope with a typhoon like Bopha, so we can’t say for sure how this will play out. What my colleagues at Plan Philippines are doing at the moment is buying non-food items like jerry cans, hygiene kits and water purification kits that can be distributed right away, as and when needed, while an emergency “Go” team is getting ready to be deployed to affected areas.

Here in Manila, it’s a clear, sunny day. You really wouldn’t think that there’s a potentially deadly typhoon making its approach not too far away. Thanks to social media, though, it’s possible to get an accurate understanding of what’s happening. Twitter has become invaluable in that sense. On my desktop, I have Tweetdeck set up to monitor the hashtags #Bopha and #PabloPH, and I also have a Twitter list of people and organisations who are sharing useful information about what’s going on. Through the Plan Asia account and my personal one, I can keep abreast of the latest developments and also engage with people who are in the areas that will be affected.

Getting ready for the big one

As I write this, Plan Philippines has held its Crisis Management Team meeting and my colleagues are now rushing around trying to get everything sorted. As a member of Plan’s Asia Regional Office communications team, my role is to be here and help my colleagues communicate what they’re doing to our internal and external audiences. This is important because it means we can do our jobs better.

If Plan is visible and people see what we’re doing, it makes it easier to get funding to support our emergency response. It paves the way to a higher level of acceptance by everyone from communities to donors to the government and makes it easier for us to spotlight key issues that otherwise may not get attention they deserve, such as the need for child-friendly spaces or the vulnerability of children during and after a natural disaster of this magnitude.

We still have a long way to go, but we’ll be posting regular updates to our Twitter account and Facebook page as this unfolds. In the mean time, I’ll be travelling to Visayas today while my colleague from Plan Philippines will travel to Mindanao after Bopha has made landfall.�

Bilang Typhoon Bopha, lokal na kilala bilang Pablo, nalalapit sa Pilipinas, lahat kami ay humihiling sa ating sarili ang parehong tanong: Saan ito pagpunta? Paano masamang ito hit? Ay ang mga komunidad bilang naghanda bilang maaari nilang para sa naturang kalamidad?

Sa isang tiyak na lawak, maaari naming hulaan karami ng ito. Imahe mula sa satellite ay nangangahulugan na maaari naming subaybayan kung saan Bopha ay, kung saan ito ay malamang na pumunta susunod at kung paano malakas na ito ay. Sa huling check, ito ay isang kategorya 3 bagyo (bagaman ito ay maaaring mag-iba mula sa pinagmulan sa pinagmulan), na sa isang sukat na napupunta hanggang sa limang, ay nangangahulugan na ang pagpapakete ito pa ng manuntok. Kahit na ito ay nai-downgrade na mula sa isang super bagyo, pa rin ito ay may hangin papalapit 175kmh.

Bopha ay palaging sa isang banggaan kurso kasama ang Pilipinas, ngunit ang landas sa nito ay malamang na kumuha ay medyo Paglipat sa huling araw o higit pa. Sa kasalukuyan, sa tingin namin ito ay pagpunta sa ipasok sa pamamagitan ng silangang bahagi ng Mindanao sa 6 ng umaga bukas at pagkatapos ay papunta sa Visayas. Ito ay kasalukuyang tungkol sa 600km layo at paglipat ng tungkol sa 20kmh, o malapit doon.

Ulat sa Internet na iba-iba sa mga tuntunin ng kung anong uri ng pagkawasak ang maaari naming asahan mula sa Bopha. Sa tuktok dulo ng scale, nagkaroon ng haka-haka na Bopha magpahamak ng higit pang kaguluhan kaysa sa Typhoon Sendong, na ravaged Mindanao noong nakaraang taon, na nagiging sanhi ng higit sa 1,200 pagkamatay, may marami pang nawawala.

Pagkatapos Sendong smacked Mindanao (hindi isang lugar na aming normal na ipatupad ang mga programa), Plan Inilunsad ang isang emergency tugon, pagbibigay ng mga kit ng lunas para sa mga bata at kanilang mga pamilya at pagse-set up ng mga sentro ng paglisan para sa ilan sa mga libu-libong ng mga tao na ang mga tahanan ay nawasak o nasira. Sa na terminong ginamit, nagtrabaho namin sa aming mga lokal na kasosyo i-set up bata-friendly na mga puwang at magbigay ng sira ang ulo-panlipunan suporta sa mga struggling na dumating sa mga tuntunin sa kung ano ang nangyari.

Ang pagkawasak sa isla ay napakalawak, lalo na sa Cagayan de Oro at Iligan. Bagyo ay din ng wakeup tawag sa mga lokal na awtoridad ng maraming mga tao ay underprepared para tulad ng natural na kalamidad. Kahit ngayon, halos isang taon sa, mayroong pa rin ang maraming mga naninirahan sa mga sentro ng paglisan.

Humanda

Paghahanda sa kalamidad ay isang bagay na sa tingin namin napaka malakas tungkol sa Plano at sa mga lugar kung saan namin ipatupad ang mga programa, hindi namin mamuhunan sa ito mabigat. Ang ideya ay na ang mga komunidad ang siyang mamumuno sa pag-uunawa ng kung ano ang panganib na sila ay madaling kapitan ng sakit sa, at pagkatapos ay ang suporta ng mga Plano at mga lokal na organisasyon ng kasosyo, ang mga komunidad ay maaaring gumana kung paano upang maghanda para sa kalamidad at kung ano ang gagawin kapag ang isang strike.

Mga bata ay malinaw naman isang malaking bahagi ng mga ito at hindi namin maaaring bigyang-diin ang sapat na ang kahalagahan ng mga bata empowered at kasangkot sa kalamidad mga gawain ng pagbabawas ng panganib. Mga bata ay ang pinaka-apektado ng kalamidad, kaya sila lamang ay hindi maaaring hindi papansinin. Ang mga ito ay may isang pangunahing karapatan upang maging bahagi ng mga desisyon na nakakaapekto sa kanilang buhay sa gayon ay maaari silang maunawaan kung ano ang nangyayari at lumaki sa mga uri ng kaalaman na maaaring i-save ang buhay.

Alam namin na ang mga bahagi ng Mindanao ay nag-iiba sa mga tuntunin ng kung gaano kahusay ang maaari nilang makaya na may bagyo tulad Bopha, kaya hindi namin maaaring sabihin para sa sigurado kung paano ito ay i-play ang. Ano ang aking mga kasamahan sa Plan Pilipinas ay ginagawa sa sandaling ang pagbili ng mga di-pagkain ng mga item tulad ng Jerry lata, kalinisan kit at tubig pagdalisay kit na maaaring ibahagi ang kaagad, bilang at kapag kinakailangan, habang ang isang kagipitan “Go” na koponan sa pagkuha ng handa na na-deploy sa mga apektadong lugar.

Dito sa Manila, ito ay isang malinaw, maaraw na araw. Mo ba talagang hindi tingin na may maaaring nakamamatay na bagyo diskarte nito ay hindi masyadong malayo. Salamat sa social media, bagaman, ito ay posible upang makakuha ng tumpak na pag-unawa ng kung ano ang nangyayari. Twitter ay naging napakahalaga sa na kahulugan. Sa aking desktop, Tweetdeck ko set up upang masubaybayan ang mga hashtags # Bopha at # PabloPH, at ko rin ng Twitter listahan ng mga tao at mga organisasyon na pagbabahagi ng kapaki-pakinabang na impormasyon tungkol sa kung anong nangyayari sa. Sa pamamagitan ng account Plan Asya at ang aking personal na, ang maaari kong panatilihin ang magkatabi ang pinakabagong mga development at ring makisali sa mga tao na sa mga lugar na apektado.

Pagkuha ng handa para sa malaking

Bilang isulat ko ito, Plan Pilipinas ay gaganapin nito Krisis Pamamahala ng Team meeting at ngayon ang aking mga kasamahan ay rushing sa paligid sinusubukan upang makakuha ng lahat pinagsunod-sunod. Bilang isang miyembro ng Asia Plano ng koponan ng Regional Office komunikasyon, ang aking papel na dito at matulungan ang aking kasamahan na makipag-usap kung ano ang kanilang ginagawa sa aming mga panloob at panlabas na mga madla. Ito ay mahalaga dahil ito ay nangangahulugan na maaari naming gawin ang aming mga trabaho mas mahusay.

Kung ang Plan ay nakikita at nakikita ng mga tao kung anong ginagawa namin, ginagawang mas madali upang makakuha ng pagpopondo upang suportahan ang aming mga tugon ng emergency. Paves ang paraan sa isang mas mataas na antas ng pagtanggap ng lahat mula sa mga komunidad sa mga donor sa pamahalaan at ginagawang mas madali para sa amin upang Spotlight pangunahing isyu na kung hindi man ay hindi maaaring makakuha ng pansin na karapat-dapat sila, tulad ng pangangailangan para sa mga bata-friendly na mga puwang o ang kahinaan ng mga bata sa panahon at pagkatapos ng isang natural na kalamidad ng magnitude na ito.

Mayroon pa kaming isang mahabang paraan upang pumunta, ngunit namin ang pag-post ng mga regular na update sa aming Twitter account at Facebook pahina bilang ito unfolds. Pansamantala, ako naglalakbay sa Visayas ngayon habang ang aking kasamahan mula sa Plan Pilipinas ay maglakbay sa Mindanao pagkatapos Bopha ay ginawa pagtanaw sa lupain.

Palau is Set to Get Lashed By A “One in A Million” Typhoon

“Posted on December 2, 2012 by Oceania TV News

By Kassi Berg

The air that now blankets Palau is warm, dry, still, and disturbingly ominous.  Palau’s sky has reason to brood for in less than 24 hours Typhoon Bopha is predicted to make landfall on the tiny nation of the Republic of Palau with a near direct hit.  This typhoon has been securing strength and intensity while at sea and is expected to be a monster typhoon with a violent entry.

As of 4am on December 2, 2012,  this typhoon is predicted to sustain 150-mph winds and 180-mph gusts when it reaches Palau on early morning Monday.  If that were not enough, storm force winds extend out from the center to 120 miles and maximum wave height is now estimated at 48 feet.

Typhoon Bopha defies all parameters with intense rainfall, huge diameters and fierce, harnessed winds.  Yet, what makes Typhoon Bopha a “typhoon in a million” is that it has developed five-degrees from the equator, an area which is covered by the “Coriolis force.”   The Coriolis effect forces a counterclockwise rotation for all storms in the Northern Hemisphere (storms south of the equator rotate clockwise).   According to Wikpedia, since records began, only thirteen tropical cyclones have ever existed between 5°N and 5°S of the equator.

Palau lies on the edge of the typhoon belt and has never seen a typhoon of this magnitude.” – oceaniatv.net

The Philippines’s strongest typhoon so far this year has forced more than 41,000 people from their homes as it pounds southern provinces cutting power, suspending travel and flooding areas that are prone to landslides.

More than 41,000 people evacuated high-risk coastal villages and along rivers, including in areas that were devastated by a deadly storm a year ago.

President Benigno Aquino III made a national TV appeal for people in typhoon Bopha’s path to move to safety and take storm warnings seriously. Aquino said army troops had deployed search and rescue boats in advance.

Authorities ordered small boats and ferries not to venture out along the country’s eastern coastline, warning of rough seas and torrential rain and wind that could whip up four-metre waves.

Government forecaster Jori Loiz said Bopha, the strongest typhoon to hit the country this year, had weakened since it made landfall in Davao Oriental province early on Tuesday but winds remained at 99mph (160km/h) with gusts of up to 121mph.

The civil defence chief, Benito Ramos, said officials were checking for casualties or damage from a landslide on a mountainside village in Compostela Valley province.

They were also working to verify unconfirmed casualty reports from Southern Leyte and Davao Oriental provinces.

Power was cut off in several municipalities in southern Surigao del Sur, Surigao del Norte and Davao Oriental provinces after parts of Agusan del Sur province flooded.

Bopha’s rain front, 373 miles wide, is expected to be out of Philippine territory by Friday.

Bopha, its name taken from the Cambodian word for flower or a girl, is the 16th big storm system to hit the Philippines this year.

The country usually has about 20 typhoons and major storms a year.

Philippine death toll from Typhoon Bopha rises

The death toll from a powerful storm battering the southern Philippines has risen to about 200, as rescue teams headed for affected areas.

At least 156 people are known to have died in Compostela Valley province alone when Typhoon Bopha struck Mindanao, local officials told the BBC.

Rescuers have reached most areas, but have had difficulty getting to some isolated communities.

Many were evacuated ahead of the storm, now over the western island of Palawan.

The typhoon is expected to move out into the South China Sea on Thursday.

Map

Fe Maestre, government information officer in Compostela Valley, told the BBC’s Kate McGeown in Manila that rescuers there were working with the army and relief agencies, adding that an estimated 70% of the area’s agricultural land had been damaged.

‘Torrents of water’

Compostela Valley province, in eastern Mindanao, was said to be the hardest-hit area. Neighbouring Davao Oriental province was also badly affected, with reports of about 50 people killed.

In Andap village, in Compostela Valley, water and mud rushed down mountainous slopes to engulf a school and a village hall serving as evacuation centres.

At least 43 people were killed, with more reported missing and injured – including soldiers sent to help with evacuations.

“They thought that they were already secure in a safe area, but they didn’t know the torrents of water would go their way,” Compostela Valley Provincial Governor Arturo Uy told local media.

A road into the town was blocked by debris, reports said, but the military said it was hoping to get helicopters into the area to assess the situation.

Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman said body bags and other emergency supplies would be rushed to affected areas.

“The bodies are left lying on the ground in the open in New Bataan [town containing Andap village] and we don’t want to risk the spread of disease,” she told Agence-France Presse news agency.

Davao Oriental Governor Corazon Malanyaon said roads to dozens of towns were impassable because of fallen trees and collapsed bridges, telling local media getting into them was like “running an obstacle course”.

She said initial reports indicated that in one town, Cateel, 95% of buildings had been damaged. Twenty-three people had drowned or were buried under fallen trees or buildings there, she said.

Across the affected provinces, rescuers have also pulled out dozens of people from the mud, many of whom are now being treated in evacuation centres and hospitals. Most suffered facial wounds or limb injuries.

BBC weather forecaster Darren Bett on the typhoon’s path

Dozens of domestic flights and ferry services in the central and south of the country were suspended, and schools and businesses were closed while the storm passed.

Bopha comes a year after Typhoon Washi killed more than 1,300 people in the southern Philippines.

The storm struck from 16 to 18 December, devastating the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan on the island’s north coast.

Many of those who died were sleeping as Typhoon Washi caused rivers to burst their banks, leading to landslides. Entire villages were washed away.” – BBC News

Philippine Typhoon Bopha death toll passes 300

BBC NEWS

Footage showed one young boy being pulled alive from the mud

“More than 300 people have died and hundreds more are missing in the wake of Typhoon Bopha, which cut a swathe of devastation across the southern Philippines.

The Civil Defence Office said at least 325 people were confirmed dead and another 379 missing.

People were killed in eight provinces but eastern Mindanao was worst-hit.

In Compostela Valley province alone at least 184 people died, many when flash floods hit emergency shelters.

“We have 325 dead and this is expected to rise because many more are missing,” civil defence chief Benito Ramos told a news conference early on Thursday.

“Communications are bogged down, there is no electricity, roads and bridges have been destroyed,” he said. “We’re still on a search-and-rescue mode.”

‘Like a waterfall’

The storm struck Mindanao island on Tuesday, bringing very high winds and heavy rain. Roofs were blown off houses and the rain led to both landslides and flooding.

Tens of thousands of people were moved to shelters ahead of the typhoon, but in one town in Compostela Valley the shelters themselves were swept away by flash floods.

“According to [survivors], there is a small lake on the mountain that gave way so the waters flowed down, not just along the rivers… but all across, like a waterfall, bringing a slurry that covered the whole town,” Interior Secretary Mar Roxas said.

Rescue teams are still working to reach communities in some isolated areas.

One injured man was found alive in a river in New Bataan on Thursday morning.

Carlos Agang said he had been swept away when flash floods hit his home, ending up pinned down by boulders and debris downstream. He said he did not know where his wife and children were.

“I was shouting for help all the time, but no one came. I don’t know what happened to [my family]. Perhaps they are all dead,” Mr Agang told AFP news agency.

‘Cause for distress’

The typhoon came almost a year after Typhoon Washi struck northern Mindanao with devastating consequences. More than 1,300 people died when that storm struck, as rivers burst their banks and swamped communities.

The UN’s Luiza Carvalho says 200,000 people are in evacuation shelters

The UN said that improved early warning systems had saved lives this time.

But President Benigno Aquino said more needed to be done.

“Any single casualty is a cause for distress. Our aim must always be about finding ways to lessen them,” he said.

The typhoon is now moving past the Philippines into the South China Sea.

The US has offered help to both the Philippines and Palau, which was also hit by the storm earlier in the week.

“Our embassies in Manila and Koror have offered immediate disaster relief assistance, and we are working closely with authorities in both countries to offer additional assistance as needed,” deputy State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement.” – BBC News

Philippines typhoon death toll passes 500

More than 400 missing and 310,000 homeless after typhoon Bopha strikes southern island of Mindanao

“Rescuers were digging through mud and debris on Friday to retrieve more bodies strewn across a farming valley in the southern Philippines by typhoon Bopha. The death toll from the storm has passed 500, with more than 400 people missing.

More than 310,000 people have lost their homes since the typhoon struck the island of Mindanao on Tuesday and are crowded inside evacuation centres or staying with relatives, relying on food and emergency supplies being rushed in by government agencies and aid groups.

“I want to know how this tragedy happened and how to prevent a repeat,” the president, Benigno Aquino III, said during a visit to New Bataan, the town that took the brunt of the storm with ferocious winds and rains lashing the area.

Officials have confirmed 252 dead in Compostela Valley province, including New Bataan, and 216 in nearby Davao Oriental province. Nearly 40 others died elsewhere and more than 400 are still missing, about two-thirds in New Bataan alone.

“We are going to look at what really happened. There are allegations of illegal mining, there are allegations of the force of nature,” said the interior secretary, Mar Roxas, who travelled with Aquino. “We will find out why there are homes in these geohazard locations.”

Government geological hazard maps show that the farming town of New Bataan, population 45,000, was built in 1968 in an area classified as “highly susceptible to flooding and landslides”.

Most of the deaths were in the valley, which is surrounded by steep hills and crisscrossed by rivers. Flooding was so widespread there that places people thought were safe, including two emergency shelters, became among the deadliest.

Poverty is widespread in the Philippines, and the disaster highlights the risks that some take in living in dangerous areas in the hope of feeding their families.

“It’s not only an environmental issue, it’s also a poverty issue,” the environment secretary, Ramon Paje, said. “The people would say: ‘We are better off here. At least we have food to eat or money to buy food, even if it is risky.’”

On another part of Mindanao last December, 1,200 people died when rivers overflowed after a powerful storm. Then and now, raging flash floods, logs and large rocks carried people to their deaths.

The bureau of mines and geosciences had issued warnings before the typhoon to people living in flood-prone areas, but in Compostela Valley, nearly every area is flood-prone.” – guardian.co.uk (AP)

500 killed, 400 missing, 310,000 homeless as search and rescue operations continue

Rescuers were digging through mud and debris Friday to retrieve more bodies strewn across a farming valley in the southern Philippines by a powerful typhoon.

The death toll from the storm has surpassed 500, with more than 400 people missing.

More than 310,000 people have lost their homes since Typhoon Bopha struck Tuesday and are crowded inside evacuation centers or staying with their relatives, relying on food and emergency supplies being rushed in by government agencies and aid groups.

“I want to know how this tragedy happened and how to prevent a repeat,” President Benigno Aquino III said during a visit to New Bataan town, the ground zero of the disaster, where ferocious winds and rains lashed the area.

Officials have confirmed 252 dead in Compostela Valley, including New Bataan, and 216 in nearby Davao Oriental province.

Nearly 40 others died elsewhere and more than 400 are still missing, about two-thirds in New Bataan alone.

Aquino told New Bataan residents gathered in the middle of toppled coconut trees and roofless houses that he was bent on seeking answers in order to improve their conditions and minimize casualties when natural disasters occur.

Fatal storms and typhoons blowing from the Pacific are common in the Philippines, but most of them hit northern and central areas, and southern Mindanao Island is usually spared.

The economic losses began to emerge Friday after export banana growers reported that 14,000 hectares (34,600 acres) of export banana plantations, equal to 18 percent of the total in Mindanao, were destroyed.

The Philippines is the world’s third-largest banana producer and exporter, supplying well-known brands such as Dole, Chiquita and Del Monte mainly to Japan and also to South Korea, China, New Zealand and the Middle East.

Typhoon Bopha: Fears for Philippines missing

BBC NEWS 10 December 2012 Last updated at 03:02

Typhoon Bopha devastated parts of the southern Philippines last Tuesday, but the number of people killed and missing has been climbing steadily.

President Benigno Aquino has declared a state of national calamity as the search for the missing continues.

The BBC’s Kate McGeown reports from Newbataan in the Compostela Valley in the province of Mindanao.

9 December 2012 Last updated at 16:17

Residents appeal for aid in Montevista township, Compostela Valley, southern Philippines on 9/12/12 Typhoon-hit communities are desperate for relief supplies, resorting to holding up signs along roadsides asking for donations

The number of people missing after Typhoon Bopha struck the southern Philippines has risen to more than 800, with 620 confirmed dead.

The number of missing had risen dramatically because contact was lost with 300 fishermen at sea, Civil Defence chief Benito Ramos said.

Rescuers are continuing to search parts of Mindanao island devastated by the typhoon on Tuesday.

Bopha is due to return, in a much-weakened state, later on Sunday.

Storm alerts have been issued for provinces in the northern island of Luzon.

President Benigno Aquino has declared a state of national calamity, which should allow officials to control the basic price of commodities and enable local governments to access funds for relief efforts.

Japan, the United States, Australia and Canada have all pledged to give aid.

’100% destruction’

Mindanao’s two eastern provinces, Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental, were the worst hit by the high winds and heavy rain brought by Typhoon Bopha.

In New Bataan, in Compostela Valley, several buildings – including emergency shelters – were washed away or buried by flash floods and mudslides.

Locator map

More than 300,000 people were forced into evacuation centres.

Food and water is becoming hard to come by and there have been reports of looting in some areas.

Families were lined up along roadsides in Compostela Valley holding up signs asking for food.

“Have mercy on us, please donate,” read one sign held up by some children.

A UN aid assessment team found 100% destruction” upon its arrival in Mindanao, said spokeswoman Imogen Wall, who warned that civilians there will “need a lot of help” for a long time.

“This is a very poor area where everyone is dependent on agriculture. If people can’t earn money from crops they won’t be able to put food on the table for their families,” she told the AFP.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said on Sunday that the death toll now stood at 620, nearly 1,500 had been injured and 817 were missing.

Civil Defence chief Benito Ramos said that the number of missing – which stood at nearly 400 on Friday – had more than doubled because some 300 fishermen had been added to the list.

The fishermen were last heard from as they headed towards the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea before the typhoon struck, he said.

But although they have been declared missing, a search has been launched for them in case they found refuge on the islands but had been unable to make contact with their base back in the Philippines, he added.

The Philippines is hit by several typhoons each year but they usually strike further to the north. Last year, Typhoon Washi left more than 1,300 people dead when it struck northern Mindanao, causing rivers to burst their banks.

Ahead of this typhoon – which was stronger than Washi – the government issued warnings, with Mr Aquino appearing on television to urge people to take the storm seriously.

Troops were sent to help out with evacuations and rescue personnel deployed in advance.

One million storm survivors in Philippines need food aid – UN

BANGKOK (AlertNet) A month after Typhoon Bopha hit the southern Philippines, up to 1 million people need food assistance and thousands of others could be displaced for a second time, the United Nations says.

The most intense storm to hit disaster-prone Philippines in 2012 struck Mindanao island in the early hours of Dec. 4, killing more than 1,000 people, flooding farming and mining towns and burying many people in mudslides. More than 800 people remain missing.

“Overall the need (for food assistance) is for about 800,000 to a million people across several regions,” said Dipayan Bhattacharyya, head of food security with the World Food Programme (WFP) in the Philippines.

“For the international humanitarian community, we’re primarily focusing on 481,000 people in 4 or 5 provinces which are the worst affected – such as Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley, Agusan del Sur and Surigao del Sur,” he told AlertNet by phone from Mindanao.

WFP has been distributing food since the immediate aftermath of the storm and recently started food-for-work activities such as cleaning drainage and clearing debris.

“We’re now trying to monitor the market situation and based on it, we would very soon launch cash-for-work activities so people can purchase food directly from the market,” Bhattacharyya said.

“From January we will also start emergency feeding in schools, targeting about 80,000 school children in these four provinces,” he added.

These programmes are expected to last around six months, he said.

Close to 1 million typhoon survivors remain outside evacuation centres. Of the 13,940 people in evacuation centres, 6,400 people who currently sheltering in schools face being forced to move again with classes due to resume on Jan. 14, according to a U.N. report released on Thursday.

The U.N. report said agencies are facing severe funding constraints and are unable to expand their programmes.

The United Nations launched an appeal for $65 million on Dec. 10 to respond to the disaster but so far it is only 21 percent funded. Of the $10 million needed for emergency shelter, only 16 percent of it is funded.

The survivors are also suffering from acute respiratory infections and health care workers are seeing increasing numbers of acute diarrhoea, the report said.

It said damaged health facilities and the fact that many health workers had been affected by the typhoon themselves meant delays in the provision of health services, especially for reproductive health.

Powerful Typhoon Son-Tinh Slams in to Vietnam / 28 October

Published on October 28, 2012 by Robert Speta (Broadcast meteorologist for NHK World in Tokyo Japan):

People in the Capital city of Vietnam are bracing themselves today for impact of a powerful Typhoon. Flooding in the area is high at risk and low lying areas near the immediate coast should defiantly be on guard for storm surge as the storm meanders up the coastlines towards the China Vietnam border. Meanwhile we look at the bay of bengal where a area of energy may bring the risk of flooding in Southern India, and then lastly we quickly update on the on going tsunami event towards Hawaii.

Mạnh mẽ Typhoon Sơn-Tĩnh Slam vào Việt Nam / 28 tháng 10

Được đăng trên 28 Tháng 10 năm 2012 bởi Robert Speta (Phát sóng nhà khí tượng học cho NHK World ở Tokyo Nhật Bản):

Người dân ở thành phố thủ đô của Việt Nam đang giằng mình ngày hôm nay ảnh hưởng của một cơn bão mạnh mẽ. Lũ lụt trong khu vực có nguy cơ cao và vùng thấp nằm gần bờ biển ngay lập tức defiantly nên bảo vệ những cơn bão do các cơn bão uốn lượn lên bờ biển về phía biên giới Trung Quốc Việt Nam. Trong khi đó chúng ta nhìn vào vịnh Bengal, nơi một lĩnh vực năng lượng có thể mang lại nguy cơ lũ lụt ở miền Nam Ấn Độ, và sau đó cuối cùng chúng tôi nhanh chóng cập nhật về sự kiện sóng thần đối với Hawaii.

#Philippines #Tornado & #Flooding:At least 2 dead, 37 missing, 765 families & 3,825 dependents, affected in Sarangani flood – Published 15 June 2012 1420 GMT/UTC

Friday, 15 June, 2012 at 03:19 UTC RSOE:

Philippines Flooding: At least 2 dead as search for 61* swept away in Sarangani continues, 765 families evacuated

Search and rescue teams are the continuing the search for the 61* reported missing persons who were swept away by a flash flood in Sarangani Province Monday evening, June 11.

In a resolution approved by Glan Mayor James Victor Yap, the entire municipality of Glan was already declared under a state of calamity.

Yap said that the flash flood left an estimated P20-million damage on properties in the municipality with at least 30 houses totally destroyed.

He said that Vice-president Jejomar Binay had already committed 1,000 packs of relief goods for the affected families.

Aside from the provincial government and the neighboring municipalities, Sarangani Province Representative Manny Pacquiao also pledged financial support for the victims and for the search and rescue operations, Yap said.

Convergence and collaboration of rescue and relief operations between the local government, PNP, Philippine Army, Navy, Coast Guard and other disaster relief and rescue units are currently being conducted in the affected barangays in the municipalities of Glan and Maasim.

Maj Jake Obligado, Civil-Military Operations Chief of the 10th Infantry Division, said that the missing individuals were indentified after the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Councils of the municipalities of Maasim and Glan conducted house-to-house surveys in every barangay to physically account for the affected families.

Obligado said that a total of 765 affected families are presently housed in 4 evacuation centers in the municipality of Glan. The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (PDRRMO) also reported that 276 persons, mostly fishermen, have been either rescued or washed ashore after the flash flood.

The Sarangani PDRRMO said that the local government of Maasim has dispatched search and rescue teams to barangay fishermen in Glan. Search and rescue units will also be dispatched to Balut Island to scour for more survivors.

Two persons were confirmed dead in the flooding brought by the torrential rain.

Meanwhile in Palawan, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) found and retrieved the body of a 6th casualty in the MV Joecill 2 sea tragedy that occurred in El Nido, Palawan Tuesday, June 12.

The victim was identified as Juanito Tito, a village councillor of Barangay New Guinlo, Taytay. Survivors interviewed over local radio DWAR said they last saw Tito removing his life jacket and giving it to an elderly passenger before they jumped together into the water.

According to the PCG, 6 passengers have been reported missing by relatives, while 56 have been rescued.

Two of those missing were an 8-month-old infant and a certain Julito Buenafe.

The owner of the vessel, Silverio Atienza of Silverio Shipping Lines, acknowledged during a radio interview that the boat manifest did not include the names of other passengers who took the boat.

The Western Command reported 7 dead so far, while another unidentified body was retrieved Thursday afternoon. Search and rescue operations are still ongoing. (*now 37 missing)

Government of the Philippines Report 15 June 2012

37 missing, 765 families & 3,825 dependents, affected in Sarangani flood

By Danilo E. Doguiles

KORONADAL CITY, June 15 (PIA) — Thirty-seven fishermen are still unaccounted or in Sarangani province, according to a report from the Sarangani Provincial Information based on the 4:00 p.m. June 14 consolidated report of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO).

This brings the total number of fishermen who were rescued or confirmed to have safely returned to shore to 307. Most of them have already returned to their homes.

They were part of the fishermen, mostly from Maasim, who were lost at sea following a storm surge Tuesday dawn.

Search and rescue teams from the Maasim Municipal DRRM, the Philippine Coast Guard and the Philippine Navy as well as local banca operators in the area continue to scour Sarangani Bay and the area surrounding Balut Island for survivors.

The number of casualties from the June 12 flash flood and storm surge remain at two.

Capt. George Ursabia, commander of Coast Guard District South Eastern Mindanao (CGDSEM), told the PDRRMO during the incident assessment that three was no storm on June 12 but just sudden change of weather and sea conditions due to the shallow LPA 100 km south of Mindanao at the time that apparently induced the southwest monsoon.

It was so sudden that the change of sea condition was so abrupt, from calm to rough, with a wind of approximately 40 knots, he said.

The situation began around 1:00 a.m., Tuesday and lasted for more or less 25 hours until early dawn Wednesday.

Most of the fishermen were out at sea as early as in the evening of 11 June when the sea and weather were normal, not expecting such unusual change (of weather and sea conditions) as there were no signs of such in a progressive manner, he said. They were caught off-guard.

Meanwhile, Glans Municipal DRRMO also raised yesterday afternoon the total number of families affected by the June 12 flash flood to 765 families with 3,825 dependents.

The number of worst-hit barangays had also been raised to four with the addition of Baragay Laguimit. Initially, the villages of Pangyan, Cross, and Big Margus were identified as the most affected areas. The flood also hit 16 other barangays.

Yesterday morning, Glan Mayor Victor James Yap Sr. led a convoy of medical team, government employees, and trucks loaded with rice for distribution to the affected barangays.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)12 also released a truckload of family food packs along with UNICEF-donated tarpaulins that could be made into tents and bedsheets.

Yap has also asked the the Government Security and Insurance System (GSIS) to grant all GSIS members in Sarangani financial assistance under the GSIS calamity fund.

In a letter sent to GSIS Manager Maria Cecilia Vega yesterday, the local chief executive cited the tornado and flash floods that struck 20 barangays in the municipality as primary reason of the request. (DED-PIA 12)

Philippines clothing store fire kills 17 employees

An inferno at a three-story clothing store in the southern Philippines early Wednesday killed 17 employees, most of whom were women who were asleep and trapped on the top floor, officials said.

The fire in the Butuan city store broke out at 3:55 a.m. and raged for five hours.

Firefighters and police scouring the gutted building found 17 bodies, said city police chief Pedro Obaldo.

Store employee Mylene Tulo, who escaped with two co-workers, said she was roused from sleep as the fire spread rapidly in the third-floor office where they slept.

Amid the inferno and yells for help, she managed to dash out with her colleagues. They sustained minor burns on their arms.

“We wanted to rouse others from sleep, but the fire was already too strong,” a stunned Tulo said.

At least 20 employees, mostly women, were sleeping at the store when the fire broke out, Obaldo said.

Many stores in the Philippines allow their employees to sleep over, especially those with faraway homes.

Relatives and friends, most of them in shock and tears, gathered in search of loved ones in front of the building, where police stood before body bags with the victims’ remains.

Obaldo said investigators were trying to determine what sparked the fire and if the owners violated fire regulations.

The building in Agusan del Norte province in the southern Mindanao region was a theater before being turned into a commercial center with several stores, including the Novo Jeans and Shirts, where most of the victims died.

A lack of firefighting equipment and personnel coupled with safety violations has resulted in major fire disasters in the Philippines, especially in shantytowns.

A 1995 inferno that gutted the Ozone Disco Pub in Manila, the capital, killed 162 people.

Butuan is a city of more than 300,000 about 790 kilometers (500 miles) southeast of Manila.
