Umabot sa kabuuang 8,205 pamilya o 32,491 indibiduwal ang inilikas sa Catanduanes dahil sa pananalasa ng bagyong Bising.
Karamihan sa mga inilikas na residente ay mula sa coastal areas at mga lugar na lantad sa banta ng pagbaha at pagguho ng lupa.
Sa ulat ni UNTV Correspondent Dan Gersalia sa programang Ito Ang Balita, halos dalawang araw nang nararamdaman sa Catanduanes ang mga pag-ulan at hanging dala ng bagyo.
May ilang insidente na rin ng minor landslide ang naitala, maging ang pagtaas ng antas ng tubig sa mga ilog sa ilang bahagi ng Catanduanes.
Sa bayan ng San Andres, may ilang poste na rin ng kuryente ang natumba habang wala namang supply ng kuryente sa ilang bahagi ng lalawigan matapos itong putulin mula pa noong Linggo ng tanghali bilang paghahanda sa bagyo.
Sa bayan ng Virac, may ilang lugar ding nawalan ng supply ng tubig bilang bahagi ng preventive shutdown measures ng water service provider.
Gumagana naman ang mga linya ang komunikasyon sa lalawigan.
Tiniyak ng lokal na pamahalaan na patuloy ang pamamahagi ng ayuda sa mga pamilyang inilikas dahil sa bagyong Bising.
Ang Catanduanes ay nasa ilalim ng Tropical Cycline Wind Signal number two, pati na ang ilang bahagi ng Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon, Northern Samar, at Samar at Eastern Samar.
Nakataas naman ang Signal Number One ilang bahagi ng Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Aurora, Quezon kabilang na ang Polillo Islands, Camarines Norte, Masbate kabilang na ang Burias at Ticao Islands, Biliran, Leyte, at ang nalalabing bahagi ng Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon, Samar at Eastern Samar, pati na ang dulong bahagi ng Cebu kabilang na ang mga isla ng Bantayan at Camotes.
Ayon sa PAGASA, maaaring makaranas ng malalakas na pag-ulan hanggang sa araw ng Martes ang mga rehiyon ng Bicol at Northern Samar pati na ang ilang bahagi ng Aurora at mainland Cagayan at Isabela.
Sa pagtaya ng PAGASA, maaaring kumilos lumayo ang bago sa kalupaan ng Luzon sa araw ng Miyerkules o Huwebes.
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) brewing near the southern section of the country.
As of 10:00 AM Wednesday (May 12), the LPA was estimated at 595 kilometers East of Davao City.
It is forecast to move generally westward or west-northwestward towards Mindanao but is less likely to develop into a tropical depression in the next 24 hours.
PAGASA said the trough of LPA will bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental in the next 24 hours.
Under these conditions, isolated to scattered flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are likely during heavy or prolonged rainfall especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps.
Adjacent or nearby areas may also experience flooding in the absence of such rainfall occurrence due to surface runoff or swelling of river channels.
The public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take appropriate measures and monitor regular updates on this weather disturbance through the agency’s official website.
MANILA, Philippines—Catch the Eta Aquarid meteor shower and the total lunar eclipse in May.
About 20 or more meteors per hour will be seen from the sky as the Earth passes close to the orbit of Halley’s comet, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The meteor shower is usually active between April 19 and May 28 every year.
“The point from where the meteors appear to radiate is located within the constellation Aquarius, the Water Bearer,” PAGASA said.
Meanwhile, on May 26, a total lunar eclipse will be visible in the Philippine sky. The entire event will be seen in South/East Asia, Australia, Much of North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica.
PAGASA said the eclipse will begin at 4:47 p.m. Philippine Standard Time (PhST) and will end at 9:49 p.m. (PhST).
In Manila, the moon will rise at 6:14 P.M. on 26 May and will set at 4:49 A.M. on 27 May 2021.
The state weather bureau assured that lunar eclipses are safe to watch and observers need not use any kind of protective filters for the eyes. A pair of binocular will help magnify the view and will make the red coloration of the moon brighter. AAC
MANILA, Philippines — Hope for clear skies as the full moon on Tuesday (April 27) will be a supermoon, according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The state weather bureau said the moon will appear bigger and brighter than a regular full moon during its peak from 11:22 to 11:32 p.m.
The full moon will have a perigee distance of 357,378 kilometers (km) away from Earth, which is the “closest that the moon comes to the earth in its elliptic orbit.”
PAGASA said the term ‘supermoon’, popularized by astrologer Richard Nolle, is astrological in origin and has no precise astronomical definition. AAC
