T4 raised over Bicol region as Typhoon Rolly seen to pose ‘serious threat’

01 November 2020

By The SUN

Pag-asa's weather bulletin shows Rolly on track to slam onto Catanduanes early Sunday

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pag-asa), has raised Signal No. 4 over the Bicol region and warned of “serious threat”, as Typhoon Rolly (international name: Goni) moved closer to Catanduanes where it is forecast to make landfall early today.

Typhoon Rolly picked up strength as it moved closer inland, packing winds of 215 kph near the centre, with gusts of up to 265 kph as it moved west southwest at 25 kph.

Pag-asa has said it is not ruling out the possibility that Rolly may intensify to a super typhoon before landfall, which could necessitate the hoisting of signal No 5, the highest typhoon signal in the country. A storm is classified as a super typhoon once its winds reach 220 kilometers per hour (kph).

Among the areas on its path is Metro Manila, which is expected to bear the full onslaught of the typhoon by noon of Sunday.

This prompted the authorities to order the closure of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to all flights from 10am of Nov 1 (Sunday) to 10am of Nov 2 (Monday)

According to the Manila International Airport Authority, all terminals at NAIA will be closed for the duration of the 24-hour closure, so all passengers are advised not to go to their airport to take their chances.

In its latest weather bulletin issued at 11pm Saturday, Pag-asa said the typhoon will move towards the Camarines provinces later in the morning before heading towards Quezon province in the afternoon.

It is forecast to weaken considerably as it makes its way through the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) area, before emerging over the Philippine sea early on Monday.

But even at its current strength, Rolly is already forecast to pose a very serious threat to the Bicol region, with “violent winds and intense to torrential rainfall” likely to affect Catanduanes, the Camarines provinces, as well as the northern portion of Albay, including Rapu-Rapu Islands.

Storm surge of more than 3 meters (around 10 feet) could be expected in the next 24 hours over the coastal areas of Catanduanes and Camarines Norte, and the northern coastal areas of Quezon; up to 3 meters in the coastal areas of Metro Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Bataan, southeastern Batangas (facing Tayabas Bay), and most of the southern coastal areas of Quezon.

Smaller swells of up to 2 meters are expected off Marinduque, Lubang Island and Burias Island, and the remaining coastal areas of Quezon, Camarines Sur and Batangas.
