Typhoon Hagupit ('Ruby') moving closer to the Philippines! Latest updates here from PAGASA

Typhoon Hagupit has already entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) 3AM today, December 4, and is now locally named 'Ruby'.

According to PAGASA's latest weather forecast and updates issued at 4PM today, Typhoon Ruby is moving slower, from 20 to 15 kph, but still, it has strengthened (now a super typhoon, according to the US Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center or JTWC), as it moves closer and closer to the Philippines.

Track of 'Ruby' as of 10AM today, Dec. 4

As of 4PM Thursday, December 4, RUBY has been tracked 720 km east of Surigao City, with maximum sustained winds of 205 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 240 kph.

Typhoon Ruby is now being expected to make landfall in Eastern Samar-Northern Samar area Saturday afternoon, December 6.

Public Storm Warning Signal #2 is now raised in the following areas: Northern Samar, Easter Samar, Samar, Biliran, Leyte and Southern Leyte, Siargao Island and Dinagat Island.

It's Signal No. 1 meanwhile in Catanduanes, Albay, Sorsogon, Masbate including Ticao Island, Northern Cebu including Bantayan Island & Camotes Island, Bohol, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Camiguin Island and Agusan del Norte.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC) has identified last night 44 critical areas which could be affected by the
'super typhoon'. These areas include even the Metro Manila, because of the typhoon's wide reach.

I'm hoping that all of us Filipinos be one in praying for the nation and countrymen's safety, now that 'Ruby' is here. We should earnestly pray the chance that it will change direction and won't make landfall would still prevail over the stronger chance that it will.

Always be prepared my dear readers, and keep updated with the latest advisory on Typhoon Ruby. - Mykiru.ph
