Tropical storm in the Philippines

May 24, 2011MANILA, Philippines
Tropical Storm Chedeng continued to bear down on the Philippines with more force on Tuesday, forcing the weather bureau to issue warnings in seven provinces in the Bicol and Eastern Visayas regions that were already beginning to feel the effects in a third cyclone this year. As of 10 am. On Tuesday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said, Chedeng was located 490 kilometers east of Borongan, Eastern Samar, with maximum sustained winds of 105 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of up to 135 km / h The storm was slowed, however, and was moving west northwest at 13 km / h, slower than its 15 km / h speed on Monday. Forecaster Robert Sawi said Chedeng was expected to increase in the "typhoon" in the next 24 hours from the center of the wind, at least 117 km / h If it stays on its present course, Chedeng is supposed to make landfall in the Cagayan-Isabella area on Friday afternoon. Sawi said the storm path may change, however. High pressure area can block noise from heading further north, and press it to move west to the Bicol provinces, he said. The consequences of the storm began to be felt in the Bicol and Eastern Visayas on Tuesday, with the increase of Pagasa storm signal number 1 for Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon and three Samar provinces. Starting Thursday, Savi said heavy rains will prevail in the province of Isabela, Quezon, and "Aurora". As storm tracks north-west, stormy weather will occur in the central and northern part of the island of Luzon on Friday and Saturday, Pagasa said the official. "It's not safe to travel by land, in the air, at sea, in these days," al-Sawi said. Pagasa officials said that the Northern Luzon should bind himself for a lot of rain. —Inquirer.net
