Weather: Be on High Alert for Typhoon Yolanda

Yolanda Typhoon Update from Rappler


To our dear friend, please be on high alert.
“RESIDENTS in Northern Mindanao region will brace for one of the “most intense if not the strongest” storm that will hit the country this year as it enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) early today, Thursday, and make its landfall in Eastern Visayas by Friday.”

To those especially in flood-prone and landslide-prone areas, keep calm and listen to instructions by your barangay leaders.

To fisherfolk, please suspend fishing ventures to some other time until the typhoon exits the country by Sunday.

To pet owners and those with animals in your care, please make sure you also prepare for their safety.

“City Veterinary head Dr. Perla J. Asis said an evacuation center for animals has been put up in Upper Lumbia at the Capitol University ranched owned by Juarez family. Pet owners can call the City Vet’s hotline number 09177199459 whenever they need help to rescue their pets or any other domestic animals.

Asis reminds residents who have domestic or pet animals to unleash them since they have survival instincts just like the humans.”
