Typhoon Kammuri

Typhoon Kammuri rattled the Philippines when it made its fourth landfall today, with winds packing up to 170kmph. Kammuri has wreaked havoc over Luzon wherein warnings of storm surge of up to 3 metres and flooding was in place.

The typhoon caused enough destruction with causing toppled vehicles and fallen trees. Around 200,000 people were evacuated in view of the storm. Moreover, Kammuri killed 2 before it moved to South China Sea.

There have been reports of blown houses, snapping of power and communication lines along with roads being blocked.

Legazpi Airport in Albay was damaged which had broken windows and a portion of the roof blown off. The damage extent would get clearer when debris gets cleared out on the roads.

The 20th typhoon for Philippines this year, wreaked havoc over Luzon, which resulted in mass evacuations in the coastal parts.

Kammuri slammed the central parts of Philippines as a Cat 3 Typhoon. Kammuri in the morning centred at Latitude 13 degrees North, Longitude 122.4 degrees East with wind speed of 180 kmph while moving through the landmass. As of today, it is going through and through Philippines and will take 12 hours, to crossover into the South China Sea.

The system is now on a weakening note but will remain as a Cat 1 Typhoon until 36 hours. In the next 48 hours, Kammuri will become a storm.

After 48 hours, Kammuri will be showing a southward shift and move in the cooler waters, due to which it will weaken. Usually, at times, the storms crossover the Asian region, but it does not look so. Thus, the storm will fizzle out in the South China Sea.
