The tailwind of typhoon Tisoy is affecting the province of Palawan, especially the Calamianes Group of Islands, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
Local chief Sonny Pajarilla said Tuesday that the direct effect of typhoon’s circulation will affect the northern Palawan which is now under storm signal number one and Calamianes Group of Islands under signal number two.
“Talagang apektado ang Palawan at inaasahan na ang bagyo ay lalapit ‘yan kasi within today, kukunin lang niya ‘yong Mindoro area maghapon hanggang gabi. Ang tailwind nyan ay tatama sa Calamianes, meron na hangin ‘yan between 60 to 100 kilometer per hour na bugso ng hangin,” he said.
He said that Puerto Princesa City will not be directly affected by the typhoon’s circulation, however, the western coast is under the gale warning.
The city could experience partly cloudy weather and rain showers while Tisoy is in the West Philippine Sea. The trough or the extension of the weather system enters the area of the province with a combination of south and southeasterly winds that is favorable for the formation of thunderstorms.
“Although sa atin ay hindi aabot pero sa western coast ay nakataas ang gale warning, bawal maglalayag dahil malakas ang ating hangin, mataas din ang mga alon. Delikado sa mga manlalayag,” he said.
“Depende ‘yong effect sa bahay, kung sa low-cost housing pupwede talaga matanggalan ng bubong. Mga saging tipong babagsak ‘yan, malakas din ang hangin pero yong major na infrastructure, hindi naman,” Pajarilla added on the possible effect of Tisoy in Calamianes Group of Islands.
