Tropical Storm Domeng (Peipah) Set To Strike Mindanao, Philippines

Tropical Storm Alert

Tropical storm Domeng (international name: Peipah), the fourth storm to hit the country this year is also the fourth to hit Mindanao, showing a weather pattern that has changed from only six typhoons making landfall in Mindanao from 1996 to 2010 to nine typhoons in 28 months since Typhoon Sendong in December 2011.

As of 4 a.m. Sunday, Domeng was spotted at “1,020 kilometers east of General Santos City with maximum sustained winds of 65 kph near center and gustiness of up to 80 kph,” the 5 a.m. weather advisory of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

The weather bureau said Domeng is forecast to move west northwest at 20 kph.

Domeng is the fourth storm to hit the country this year and the fourth to hit what used to be described as  “typhoon-free Mindanao.”

Since Typhoon Sendong struck the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan and parts of Bukidnon on December 16-17, 2011, eight more typhoons have struck Mindanao: supertyphoon Pabloon December 4, 2012; typhoon Quinta on December 26 or just 22 days after Pablo; typhoon Yolanda on November 8, 2013; Zoraida on November 12, 2013; and since January 2014  — Agaton, Basyang, Caloy and now Domeng.

The Manila Observatory report on “Tropical Storm Sendong,” however, said Mindanao was never typhoon-free. It said that before Sendong, typhoons passed through Mindanao although not as frequently compared with Luzon and the Visayas.

The report noted that approximately 21 typhoons passed Mindanao in 17 years, from 1883 to 1900, that 35 typhoons made landfall in Mindanao in 65 years — from 1945 to 2010 — and that six typhoons made landfall in Mindanao in the last 15 years before Typhoon Sendong.

The Manila Observatory also pointed out that typhoons do pass through Mindanao in December and that “roughly one typhoon per 10 years crosses Mindanao in December.”

Since 2011, three typhoons  have crossed Mindanao in one year – Sendong in 2011 and Pablo and Quinta in 2012.

Meanwhile, fishing boats and other small craft were advised against setting sail in the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Central Luzon and Eastern Visayas due to strong Amihan winds.

NDRRMC maintains red alert status as cyclone inches toward Mindanao, Philippine
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) on Monday said it will maintain a red alert status as a new cyclone is affecting some areas with Public Storm Signal No. 1 in Mindanao.

“The NDRRMC Operations Center is still on red alert to continuously monitor the situation,” NDRRMC Executive Director Eduardo del Rosario said.

He said all disaster units in Dinagat Island, Surigao del Norte, Siargao Islands, Surigao del Sur, Agusan del Norte, and Agusan del Sur have been alerted to implement pre-emptive evacuation of residents if necessary and most specially for the local government units to help other government agencies prepare evacuation centers and prepositioning of relief goods.

Based on the latest forecast from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), tropical depression Wilma may make landfall on Thursday and then exit through Sulu Sea to the West Philippine Sea.
