Super typhoon to enter PH Wednesday


A NEW typhoon with the international name “Soudelor” will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday.

The typhoon will be named “Hanna” once inside Philippine territory. Although it will not directly hit the country, it will induce monsoons rains, particularly in extreme northern Luzon.

The weather bureau said Soudelor first made landfall on Saipan, a commonwealth of the US located in the Pacific Ocean, on August 2, destroying electricity and water infrastructure.

“Hanna” is expected to enter the country as a super typhoon but it may only graze the extreme northern area of Luzon.

The Philippines is currently being affected by an intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), which is causing light to moderate rains in certain areas, with the possibility of thunderstorms.

The weather bureau expects two to four cyclones to enter the country this month.

  1. I have been is this country now approximately 7 years ==Struck by the wonderful people…here .. and there incredible fortitude..

    Every year .we get around 20 typhoons,,,

    Manila has had, extensive work done to the drainage system…Yet i see still after seemingly years of hard work by gangs of men/woman–Huge pipes still laying on the roadside..

    When a Typhoon hits us.I doubt weather the new drainage system will work..

    There is a ongoing die-clogging process going on…But we find that people still keep chucking ,plastic bags into the gutter;as well as various forms of other rubbish.

    .This of course clogs up-the system…

    So of course manila is not Prepared for the typhoon that will eventuality hit us…It is not case of -As the law averages, is on the side of the typhoon hitting us..

    So who ever is responsible, for this drainage program ==”Better get his finger out to use a good English saying”

    I am not a lawyer but maybe there could be a case fora class action against the individuals or the authority: Who is responsible for this program..

    We are trying, to prepare for a possible earthquake..Yet typhoons are so regular and prolific here We seem to have been caught “With our pants down”!

    I remain

    Your obedient servant
