- The whole of Metro Manila and Luzon are bracing for what may be another strong typhoon
- The weather bureau stated that it is already gaining strength and is very near the classification of a typhoon
- In several hours, it is expected to reach its peak intensity of 130 to 155 kph before it will make landfall
- Even if it crosses the Sierra Madre, it is not expected to weaken and will stay as a typhoon as it would traverse the landmass of Luzon
After the onslaught of Typhoon Rolly, another storm might once more wreak havoc to the country, particularly in Metro Manila and Luzon, reported ABS-CBN.
Based on the projected track of tropical cyclone Ulysses as shared by the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA), Ulysses will already attain landfall by 11 p.m. on Nov. 11, Wednesday.
The weather bureau has already raised the tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) to No. 2 in Metro Manila and in other neighboring provinces.
Since it is expected that Ulysses will further intensify, there is a possibility that signal No. 3 may be hoisted over the Bicol region, portions of Calabarzon, Metro Manila, and Central Luzon, noted in Rappler.
Manila Bulletin stated that as early as Tuesday evening, some areas were already duly warned.
Before Ulysses, Typhoon Rolly wreaked havoc in the country. It was already categorized as a super typhoon. This was the announcement of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). After its fourth landfall in Batangas, it is now in the West Philippine Sea.
Typhoon Rolly was deemed as the strongest typhoon in 2020. Previously, what was deemed as the strongest typhoon that hit the country was Typhoon Yolanda. It had a wind strength of 215 kph and had a gustiness of 250 kph.
Typhoon Rolly has caused huge damage to the Philippines. Nevertheless, donations poured in for those who were affected. Many families were left without homes and any property.
