The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) recently urged everyone to get prepared as Typhoon Rolly, with international name Goni, is likely to intensify.
In an online press briefing on Friday, October 30, PAGASA Weather Specialist Raymond Ordinario said Rolly is projected to make landfall on Sunday evening, November 1, or early Monday morning, November 2 in either Aurora or Quezon.
After that, Rolly will head to Central Luzon, then possibly exit the country’s landmass via Pangasinan or Zambales.
"Pag-iingat at paghahanda na ang ating ipinapayo sa lahat dahil nga may panahon pa tayo para maghanda dito nga sa papalapit na bagyong si Rolly.”

“So ang tanong, ano ba ang mas malakas? Ito nga bang dalang hangin o dalang ulan ng bagyong si Rolly. Dahil ito ay isang compact na bagyo o masyadong maliit na bagyo at nagko-concentrate talaga ang lakas nito malapit sa gitna, so nakikita natin na magkakaroon ito ng malakas na bayo ng hangin at mabigat na buhos ng ulan. So halos pantay ang magiging epekto. Kaya nga pinaghahanda na natin ang ating mga kababayan sa posibleng epekto lalo na sa mga dadaanan ng bagyong Rolly.”

PAGASA is a government agency mandated to provide protection against natural calamities and to ensure the safety, well-being, and economic security within the country. PAGASA now serves as one of the Scientific and Technological Services Institutes of the Department of Science and Technology.
In May this year, PAGASA reported about the first storm of the 2020 Pacific typhoon season. It was Typhoon Ambo, with international name Vongfong.
It was followed by Typhoon Butchoy in June. During that time, PAGASA raised Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) no. 1 over Metro Manila and other areas.
