UNTV GEOWEATHER CENTER (5pm, 01/13/15) – Isa nang ganap na bagyo ang weather system sa labas ng Philippine Area of Responsibility.

Nitong alas-4 ng hapon ng Martes namataan ito ng PAGASA sa layong 1,690km sa Silangan ng Mindanao.

Tagalay nito ang lakas ng hangin na 55kph at tinatahak ang direksyong pakanluran sa bilis na 19kph.

Papangalanan itong “Amang” kapag pumasok ito sa PAR Miyerkules ng gabi o sa Huwebes ng umaga at kung hindi hihina ay tatama ito sa Eastern Visayas sa araw ng Sabado.

Sa forecast naman ng weather agency, makararanas ng mahina hanggang sa katamtamang pag-ulan ang Eastern Visayas, CARAGA at Davao region habang posible ring magkaroon ng biglaang pag-ulan o thunderstorms sa Visayas at Mindanao.

Dahil naman sa Amihan ay mararanasan ang mahinang pag-ulan sa Metro Manila at iba pang lugar sa Luzon at papulo-pulong pag-ulan sa iba pang lugar sa Visayas.

Matataas ang mga pag-alon sa mga baybayin ng Northern Luzon at Silangang baybayin ng Central at Southern Luzon hangang sa Silangang baybayin ng Visayas.

Babala ng PAGASA mapanganib na pagpalautan ito ng mga sasakyang pangisda at maliliit na sasakyang pandagat. (Rey Pelayo/UNTV News)

Typhoon Fabian may exit PAR Saturday morning — PAGASA

Marje Pelayo   •   July 21, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecast the current weather disturbance Typhoon Fabian to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Saturday (July 24).

Throughout the forecast period, Typhoon Fabian is still unlikely to directly bring heavy rainfall in the country but will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon combined with the impact of tropical storm Cempaka spotted at west northwest of extreme northern Luzon.

These weather systems will collectively bring monsoon rains in the next 24 hours over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Occidental Mindoro, and the northern portion of Palawan (including Calamian and Kalayaan Islands).

According to PAGASA, the hoisting of Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal #1 over Batanes and Babuyan Islands remains a possibility due to the uncertainty in the later portion of the track forecast of Typhoon Fabian.

Still, mariners are warned that rough to very rough seas with waves up to 4.5 meters may occur over the seaboards of Batanes and Babuyan Islands, and the western seaboard of Palawan (including Kalayaan and Calamian Islands) and Occidental Mindoro (including Lubang Islands).

Meanwhile, moderate to rough seas with up to 3.0 meters of waves may prevail over the eastern and the rest of the northern and western seaboards of Luzon.

Thus, sea travel is risky for small sea crafts over these waters.

21 cases of COVID-19 variants detected in Caraga — DOH

Marje Pelayo   •   June 9, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Health (DOH) Center for Health Development-Caraga reported 21 cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) variants in the region.

This is based on the latest results of Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) received from the University of the Philippines-Philippine Genome Center.

Of the samples sent, 13 samples tested positive for B.1.351 (first detected in South Africa), seven for B.1.1.7 (first detected in the UK) and one for P.3 (first detected in the Philippines).

The confirmed B.1.351 cases are locals of the following areas:
Bislig City (7)
Lianga, Surigao del Sur (4)
Cortes, Surigao del Sur (1)
Tandag City (1).

Meanwhile, the confirmed B.1.1.7 cases are from the following areas:
Barobo, Surigao del Sur (2)
Butuan City (2)
Esperanza, Agusan del Sur (1)
Lianga, Surigao del Sur (1)
Madrid, Surigao del Sur (1).

The confirmed P.3 variant case is a resident of Tandag City.

Initial investigation showed that among these 21 variant cases, 13 have no travel history outside their area and eight are close contacts of previously confirmed cases.

Currently, out of the 21, eighteen (18 ) are already asymptomatic and back to their normal daily routine, while one is still recovering at home.

Two cases with the B.1.351 variant died while admitted in the hospital – one (1) from Bislig City and another from Cortes, Surigao del Sur.

Concerned local health authorities are currently implementing the mandatory quarantine and control measures including rigorous tracing of the 1st to 3rd generation close contacts and re-swabbing of confirmed cases with COVID-19 variants

“With the increasing cases and continuous emergence of COVID-19 variants of concern in the region, we are appealing to the Caraganons to strictly adhere to the health protocols and minimum public health standards,” said DOH Caraga Regional Director Cesar Cassion.

“We also strongly encourage immediate vaccine uptake once the vaccines are available to your respective priority eligible group. Let us remember that by following these health measures, transmission across population and further mutation of COVID-19 can be prevented. So, let us continue to be vigilant and work together to end this pandemic,” he added.

Duterte visits Caraga areas hit by ‘Auring’

Robie de Guzman   •   February 24, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday visited parts of the Caraga region in Mindanao to personally check on the situation after it was battered by tropical depression Auring.

He conducted an aerial inspection of affected areas in Surigao del Sur with Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go.

After his inspection, he led a briefing where he directed government officials to submit a full assessment report on the impact of Auring, as well as a response plan for affected areas.

“The pressing problem really is itong pagkain. What I have really experienced, all these years being mayor of Davao City for almost 23 years… Hindi tayo, mga dumaan sa local, medyo sanay tayo. Hindi tayo dehado. Basta ganun, pagkain, shelter, and tubig. Yan ang important talaga, ang tubig,” he said.

He also ordered concerned government agencies to speed up rescue operations, relief and rehabilitation efforts in the community damaged by the storm.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) reported it has distributed food packs to affected residents. It has also allocated P22.09 million standby funds and stockpiles in Caraga and P459 million response funds in DSWD central office.

Auring, which was the first tropical cyclone to hit the country this year, had flooded many areas in Caraga over the weekend, prompting thousands of residents to flee their homes and seek temporary shelters. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Rosalie Coz)
