Yutu post

After whacking Guam, the Super Typhoon Yutu has weakened into Category 2 storm and at present is located in the vicinity of Philippines.

It is expected to hit the South Asian country during the wee hours of Tuesday as a powerful typhoon with sustained winds of 170 kmph, gusting at a speed of 210 kmph.

The sea conditions are expected to remain rough to very rough at times, causing increased surf and dangerous rip currents.

Tropical storm warnings remain intact for nine provinces in the Luzon region, where half of the Philippines’ population resides. However, it would spare the capital city of Manila situated on the western coast.

Subsequently, the system is expected to meander westward in the South China Sea and weaken into category 1 typhoon.

The storm is expected to cause torrential rainfall accompanied by gusty winds that could damage trees and buildings resulting in power outages. There is a strong likelihood of dangerous flooding and landslides, resulting in transportation delays.

The Pacific is known for producing some of the most deadly storms on Earth. Yutu will be the 18th typhoon to hit the Philippines this year, six weeks after the monstrous Typhoon Mangkut.

In a nutshell, this could be another round of destructive tropical weather for the Philippines.
