Brace yourselves because typhoon Mangkhut intensified further today. The natural disaster is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) today.
According to the latest bulleting posted by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), typhoon Mangkhut has become more powerful when it comes to its wind speed and gustiness.
PAGASA announced that typhoon Mangkhut has now a maximum wind of from 160 kilometers per hour to 170 kilometers per hour while a gustiness of 195 kilometers per hour to 210 kilometers per hour.
As of this writing, typhoon Mangkhut is now at 1, 845 kilometers east of Southern Luzon while moving at slightly slower pace from 30 kilometers per hour to 25 kilometers per hour.
While it’s still in the waters, its “typhoon” category could potentially become a “super typhoon” status as it might strengthen itself furthermore. PAGASA also added that might be named from typhoon Mangkhut to typhoon Ompong if it successfully enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow.
Although there wasn’t a signal warning as of this moment, the Weather Bureau is now advising all people in the affected areas to prepare for the incoming weather disturbance tomorrow. PAGASA also added that the possible affected areas could be the Northern Luzon and nearby places.
Typhoon Mangkhut might also add to the ongoing Southwest Monsoon (Hanging Habagat) that might bring light rain to moderate rain to the Zamboanga Peninsula, Western Visayas, and Palawan this coming Thursday.
