Typhoon Odette Update

Storm Signal Number 1:

Batanes Group of Islands, Apayao, Ilocos Norte, Abra, Kalinga, and Isabela

Expected to have winds from 30-60 kph with heavy to intense rains within the 500km diameter of the typhoon, as well as gusty winds with moderate to rough seas

Expected to have winds of 61-100 kph in at least 24 hours, as well as gusty winds and sea surges. Travel by sea vessels and aircrafts are risky in these areas.
Odette is also enhancing the southwest monsoon causing episodes of rainshowers in other parts of the archipelago. Moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms are forecast over Mimaropa, Zambales and Bataan, where residents are advised to be alert against flashfloods and landslides. The rest of Luzon is expected to experience partly cloudy to cloudy conditions with light to moderate rainshowers or thunderstorms.

In the Visayas, there are episodes of sunshine in the eastern section, but Iloilo, Antique and Roxas City are expected to experience mostly cloudy to overcast skies with light to occasional moderate showers.

At the moment, there is a yellow rainfall advisory issued over the southern portions of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental where moderate to heavy rainfall and possible flooding in low-lying areas is expected.

Mindanao is expected to have generally fair weather except for episodes of light rains and thunderstorms for Davao, Butuan and Cagayan de Oro.

In Metro Manila, the forecast is for mostly cloudy to overcast skies with slight drizzles.

Odette is forecast to move west at 13 kph and is expected to make its way towards Southern China and out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Sunday morning.

To the areas mentioned above, always be watchful. Listen to the radio stations or watch the news for updates regarding the typhoon. Evacuate when the water is higher than usual in houses near the sea and rivers. Charge your phones and pack your personal necessities so that when evacuation is needed it is already prepared. Keep safe.
