Super typhoon Haiyan, tagged locally by PAGASA as Typhoon Yolanda will hit Central Philippines by Friday.

The Philippines is up against another typhoon this year. It seems like there’s no end in sight and not even the closest sigh of relief for the victims of the recent earthquake that rocked Bohol and Cebu. After the news of a tornado hitting Cebu, something bigger is about to hit Central Philippines in the coming days.

“Haiyan will approach the Philippines on Friday. The most likely scenario is that Haiyan will be a very powerful typhoon with wind gusts over 125 mph as it approaches the central Philippines.”

“Rain and increasing wind will reach the central Philippines Friday afternoon and conditions will deteriorate from east to west Friday night into early Saturday as the powerful typhoon crosses the islands,” AccuWeather stated.

Paranoia in Cateel and the Compostela Valley about Super Typhoon Yolanda

People in the aforementioned regions have all the right to feel worried about the latest super typhoon set to cross right through the Philippines. As it stands, typhoon Yolanda, or Haiyan, as it’s known internationally, will merely bring rainfall and your typical, occasional thunderstorms to the region. Let’s hope that not only the regions above (specially since the havoc caused by Pablo last year) will be spared of extensive damage, but the whole Philippines in general.

Everyone should be well prepared and be ready for the worst to happen. Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best.
