Event

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is forecasting that Tropical Depression Samuel will make landfall in the southern portions of Eastern Samar between 00:00 and 02:00 (local time) on Wednesday, November 21. PAGASA warned that the storm is expected to bring moderate to heavy rain to the area and may cause flooding or landslides in Visayas, Bicol region, MIMAROPA, and southern Quezon. As of 23:00 on Tuesday, November 20, Tropical Depression Samuel is located approximately 90 km (56 mi) east-northeast of Guiuan and moving at 15 km/h (9 mph) with maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h (34 mph).

Context

Tropical cyclones and typhoons are common in the Western Pacific from May through November.

Advice

Individuals present in the abovementioned locations are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation and power disruptions, reconfirm flights, obey instructions issued by the local authorities (e.g. evacuation orders), and avoid flood-prone areas until the situation stabilizes. Remember that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
