Typhoon Pablo will hit Cagayan de Oro

Super typhoon Pablo (with International Name “Bopha“) is said to hit Cagayan de Oro and other neighboring provinces tomorrow at 2pm, December 4, 2012. The public storm signal warning has already been raised to alert level 3 as 7 areas all over Mindanao will be badly hit by the said typhoon, which will be carrying heavy rains and winds of up to 175 kilometers per hour (kph) maximum with gustiness of up to 210 kph. Local government agencies and disaster preparedness teams are setting up camps in preparation for the worst case scenario that could happen anytime tomorrow. Classes are temporarily suspended and will resume when the storm is already out of the city’s area of responsibility. The government is also requesting everyone staying at flood prone areas to temporarily evacuate and stay at nearby relief shelters and evacuation centers. Typhoon Pablo is said to be stronger than typhoon Sendong, which struck Cagayan de Oro last year that took the lives of many of our fellow Kagay-anons. According to PAGASA, Typhoon Pablo will be entering Surigao del Sur before heading west towards Palawan. Pablo is expected to cross Agusan and Cagayan de Oro, two of the most devastated areas during the Sendong calamity last 2011. Make sure that you are prepared when the storm hits tomorrow, be alert at all times and if you’re in a safe place stay there and only leave if it’s an emergency. Also take note of important numbers to contact in case of emergencies. Be proactive and be alert at all times and let’s hope and pray that we will all be safe.
