Metro Manila to experience rains from Typhoon ’Hagupit’ this weekend
PAGASA still wants you to take out your umbrellas
PAGASA said Thursday that Metro Manila will still experience rains as Ruby (international name ’Hagupit) makes landfall on Saturday afternoon.
Even though the capital is not likely to be badly hit by the storm, Manila is predicted to still feel its effects as it is located at the outer edge of the 600-kilometer diameter of the typhoon. Dr. Landrico Dalida Jr., deputy director for operations and services of PAGASA told DZMM, "Dadaplisan po ang Manila, nasa 30 to 60 kilometers [na winds], nasa outer edge habang papasok po ang bagyo sa Kabisayaan." Metro Manila is expected to experience rains from Saturday afternoon to Sunday.
Weather agencies have reported that Ruby will bring heavy rains and strong winds to the country, especially to the provinces along its path. Public storm warning signal numbers 1 and 2 have been declared for 21 areas across the Visayas, most of which are the same places previously affected by Typhoon Yolanda.
