Discover Magazine reports, “After landfall early on Sunday local time, the rugged terrain in the storm’s path should sap its strength. Even so, it will still ‘bring very destructive typhoon-force winds,’ according to PAGASA. Torrential rainfall, flooding and flash flooding, and landslides are also expected.”
For now, PAGASA is monitoring river basins in Cagayan and the Bicol region reporting that Naga City is at risk of possible flooding as well as areas with poor drainage systems.

I wonder what will happen to the Manila Bay White Sand Beach when that supertyphoon Rolly gonna hit it here in Luzon & Metro Manila is now under signal #4? And then the mainstream media & Yellowtards would like to see that beach into smithereens & its been “washed-out” rather than “washed-in” by the strong waves brought about by the supertyphoon Rolly. OK Boomers, you have you’re day. ?
We pray that the Typhoon did not have much destruction…
