This is the year’s The 16th Tropical Cyclone In The Philippines. Severe Tropical Storm Paeng (Nalgae) is a major concern for the country as well as travelers who are going to visit family over the long weekend to mark All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day. Torrential rains and high winds have lashed the country. This is a massive storm with a diameter of over 1,100 kilometers that destroys the majority of the country.
The affected regions include 5, 6, 8, and 12, as well as Muslim Mindanao’s Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (BARMM). Over 557,000 people were affected in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), and 170,000 were evacuated.
The storm flooded roughly 142,000 residents (around 557,000 people) from the Zamboanga Peninsula and Central Mindanao, Cotabato City, Sultan Kudarat, and Zamboanga City, according to Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) authorities. Due to the severe weather produced by Paeng, the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) and Metro Manila International Airport (MMIA) imposed temporary suspensions for all voyages and flights. According to PAGASA, another meteorological system outside of PAR is being simulated and might impact the country as early as next week. And it has the potential to exacerbate the situation in Paeng-affected areas.
A minimum of 33 injuries, 14 missing, and more or less 45 deaths because of the flash floods and landslides. The nonstop rain is expected to increase the number of victims of PAG because of the nonstop rain in all areas of the country.
Severe Tropical Cyclone Paeng (Nalgae) has made four landfalls so far.
- Catanduanes, Virac, 1:10 a.m.
- Caramoan, Camarines Sur, 1:40 a.m.
- a.m. in Buenavista, Quezon
- Santa Cruz, Marinduque, 8:40 a.m.
Paeng was traveling west-northwest at 15km/h, down from 25km/h, according to PAGASA. After making landfall in Batangas, the tropical storm spent the rest of the day moving over the Cavite-Metro Manila-Bataan area. Strong winds of 95 km/h persisted and gusted to 130 km/h in the afternoon.
