QUEZON CITY, Philippines — The National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Council has advised Local Government Units and NDRRMC member agencies to prepare for the possible landfall of typhoon Nina in the country tonight or early dawn tomorrow.

Likewise, passengers are also reminded to check their trip schedules before proceeding to ports and terminals to avoid being stranded.

Based on NDRRMC’s report, the typhoon is expected to hit the Bicol region, which would then spill over Samar. It would result in a series of lahar flow from several volcanoes in the Bicol region.

NDRRMC Spokesperson Nina Marasigan said, “Maaaring magkaroon ng debris flow or lahar flow dahil sa patuloy na pag-ulan na mararanasan kaya binigay na natin ng babal ang ating mga kababayan sa nasa paligid ng area ng bulkan.”

(There is a possibility of a debris flow or lahar flow because of the continuous rains. This is the reason why we have already warned residents living near volcanoes.)

The NDRRMC has also started coordinating with the Department of Transportation and Philippine Coast Guard for the possible cancellation of trips at terminals and ports especially in the northern seaboard of north Luzon and central Luzon, which are expected to experience the effect of northeast monsoon.

NDRRMC added that seas are rougher this December, and that waves will become bigger when typhoon Nina makes a landfall.

Marasigan added, “Kung sila ay may mga tickets at inaasahan na sila ay uuwi… sa kanilang mga pamilya ngayon pa lamang po ay maaaring magkaroon ng kanselasyon ang kanilang mga pagbibiyahe lalo na sa Sabado at Linggo.”

(If they already have tickets and they are expected to visit their families in their home provinces, they should expect cancellation of flights and trips especially on Saturday and Sunday.)

Residents in low-lying areas are also advised to go to the nearest rehabilitation or evacuation centers in their place.

The public is reminded anew to take caution and cooperate with authorities when being evacuated to avoid huge damages due to typhoon Nina.— AIKO MIGUEL, UNTV News & Rescue
