  • Pepeng (PARMA) expected to remain in RP for 3 more days
    Sunday, October 4, 2009
    MANILA - The sun may be out here in Metro Manila but weather officials said those in Northern Luzon will still feel the effects of Typhoon Pepeng (international codename Parma).

    As of 3:30 p.m., Mario Palafox of Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), told ABS-CBN News that “Pepeng” was spotted 80 kilometers north northwest of Laoag City, with maximum sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 150 kph.

    Nathaniel Cruz, PAGASA weather specialist, earlier said Pepeng is moving “very slowly” because of the high pressure area “somewhere in China.” The high pressure area is preventing Pepeng from moving toward northwest.

    Typhoon Melor

    Typhoon Pepeng also cannot move toward northeast and out of the country due to Typhoon Melor, Cruz added.

    “Melor is moving fast… nearer us. So, this typhoon is preventing Pepeng from moving towards east. That’s why, for the next several days, we will expect typhoon Pepeng to remain almost stationary in the extreme Northern Luzon,” Cruz explained.

    He said Pepeng might stay in the country for the next three days. He warned that the amount of rainfall generated by the typhoon might result in high waves and landslides “maybe not for the entire Luzon but the entire Ilocos region.”

    Pepeng’s final movement will depend on Melor and the high pressure area, according to him.

    Cruz also raised the possibility that Pepeng might “recurve” and return to northwest Luzon “and slowly move behind typhoon Melor.”

    There is, however, a small probability that Pepeng and Melor will merge and turn into a supertyphoon. Cruz said typhoons “do not normally merge with each other.”

    Public Storm Warning Signal No. 3 has been hoisted over Batanes Group of Islands, Northern Cagayan, Babuyan, Calayan Islands, Ilocos Norte and Apayao.

    PAGASA has raised Signal No. 2 over Ilocos Sur, Abra, Kalinga, and the rest of Cagayan.

    Signal No. 1, meantime, has been raised over La Union, Benguet, Mt. Province and northern Isabela.

    The weather bureau advised residents in low-lying areas and near mountain slopes under Signal Nos. 3, 2 and 1 to take all the necessary precautionary measures against flashfloods and landslides.

    Those living along the coast in areas under Signal Nos. 2 and 3 are advised to be on alert against big waves generated by the typhoon, PAGASA added.

    Slow movement

    Due to its slow movement, PAGASA is projecting that by Monday morning, "Pepeng" will still be just 120 km north northwest of Laoag City.

    By Tuesday morning, the typhoon is forecast to be 160 km northwest of Laoag City, and 200 km west northwest of Laoag City by Wednesday morning. With a report from Gretchen Fullido, ABS-CBN News
