    Signal No. 4 up in 6 areas Typhoon Odette

    TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK


    Recent Landfall:
    • Padre Burgos, Southern Leyte (5:40 PM)
    • Pres. Carlos P. Garcia, Bohol (6:30 PM)
    • Bien Unido, Bohol (7:30 PM)

    On the forecast track, 'Odette' will continue moving westward and the center of the tropical cyclone will cross several provinces in Central and Western Visayas regions before emerging over the Sulu Sea tomorrow morning.

    After passing near or in the vicinity of either Cuyo or Cagayancillo archipelago, 'Odette' is forecast to cross the northern or central portion of Palawan tomorrow afternoon before emerging over the West Philippine Sea.

    'Odette' may see some slight weakening as it crosses Visayas and Palawan, but it is forecast to remain as a typhoon.

    Re-intensification is likely once 'Odette' emerges over the West Philippine Sea. However, weakening may ensue beginning Saturday evening or Sunday as the typhoon becomes exposed to increasing vertical wind shear and the surge of the Northeast Monsoon.

    Signal No. 4 up in 6 areas Typhoon Odette

    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS


    Heavy Rainfall

    Tonight through tomorrow early morning: Heavy to torrential rains over Central Visayas, Misamis Oriental, Camiguin, Bukidnon, Southern Leyte, and Negros Occidental.

    Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Leyte, the southern portions of Eastern Samar and Samar, Zamboanga del Norte, Lanao del Sur, and the rest of Northern Mindanao.

    Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Bicol Region, Quezon, and the rest of Visayas, the rest of Zamboanga Peninsula, Davao Oriental, Davao de Oro, Davao del Norte, and mainland Bangsamoro.

    Tomorrow early morning through Saturday early morning: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Negros Oriental, Western Visayas, and Palawan including Calamian Islands, Cuyo, and Cagayancillo Islands. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Bicol Region, Zamboanga Peninsula, Quezon, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Romblon, Marinduque, Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, and the rest of Visayas. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Caraga, the southern portion of Aurora, and the rest of Northern Mindanao.

    Saturday early morning through Sunday early morning: Heavy to torrential rains over Kalayaan Islands. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Cagayan Valley, Aurora, Quezon, mainland Palawan and Calamian Islands.

    Under these conditions, scattered to widespread flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are expected especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps, and in localities with significant antecedent rainfall.

    Severe Winds

    Winds may reach typhoon strength up to 185 km/h in strength within any of the areas where TCWS #4 is hoisted during the passage of the typhoon. This may cause generally heavy to very heavy damage to structures and vegetation.

    Destructive typhoon-force winds will be experienced within any of the areas where TCWS #3 is in effect. This may bring moderate to heavy damage to structures and vegetation.

    Damaging winds reaching gale- to storm-force strength will be experienced within any of the areas where TCWS #2 is in effect. This may result in generally light to moderate damage to structures and vegetation.

    Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale) with higher gusts will be experienced within any of the areas where TCWS #1 is currently in effect during the passage of the typhoon. This may generally bring up to very light damage to structures and vegetation.

    Coastal Inundation

    There is a moderate to high risk of storm surge of up to 3.0 m in height which may cause life-threatening flooding in the low-lying coastal areas of Central Visayas, Iloilo, Guimaras, Negros Occidental, Southern Leyte, Dinagat Islands, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Agusan del Norte, and several localities in the northern portion of Palawan including Calamian, Cuyo and Cagayancillo Islands, Antique, the southern portions of Samar and Eastern Samar, Leyte, and Misamis Oriental.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

    In the next 24 hours, moderate to very high seas (1.2 to 12.0 m) will be experienced over the seaboards of areas where TCWS is in effect (especially in the open sea areas). These conditions are risky for all types of sea vessels. Mariners are advised to remain in port or take shelter in port until winds and waves subside.

    Under the influence of Typhoon 'Odette' and the prevailing Northeast Monsoon, a Gale Warning remains in effect for several coastal waters not under any wind signal, specifically the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon.

    In the next 24 hours, moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 3.1 m) will also prevail over the remaining seaboards of the country that are not under any wind signal. These conditions are risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.
