Typhoon Yutu makes landfall in Philippines, heavy rains to continue

October 30, 2018 12:38 PM |


The 18th tropical cyclone for 2018, in Philippines, Typhoon Yutu is the second most significant devastating typhoon in Philippines after Mangkhut. Yutu made landfall over Isabela province in northern Philippine main Island Luzon on Tuesday, according to the Philippines's disaster management agency.

As stated by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, Typhoon Yutu crashed into Isabela at around 4 a.m., with maximum nonstop winds of 150 kmph and gusts of up to 210 kmph. At the speed of 20 kmph, Yutu was seen moving in west direction.

In wake of this, according to PAGASA, moderate to heavy rains are likely to continue over northern and central parts of Luzon. In fact, flooding and landslides are also a danger in both Northern and Central Luzon, with 3-meter-high storm surges likely to wash over the coasts of Isabela, Cagayan, Aurora, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, La Union and Pangasinan.

Fishermen and others with small vessels have been advised to not set sail in areas covered by the gale warning. Larger vessels should watch out for big waves. Many provinces have even suspended school classes.

By tonight, Yutu is expected to enter the South China Sea and intensify into a Cat 2 Strom. Further, the typhoon will track through Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Benguet and La Union. By Wednesday, Yutu is expected to leave the Philippines.
