About 5,000 Evacuated in Philippines ahead of Typhoon Kalmaegi

MANILA – Some 5,000 people have been evacuated in northern Philippines ahead of the arrival of Typhoon Kalmaegi, which is expected to make a landfall over the province of Cagayan in the next few hours.

“We are prepared for the arrival of the storm,” Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba told local media, which also reported on a precautionary power outage in the cities of Gonzaga and Santa Ana.

With the arrival of Kalmaegi, which on Monday went from a severe tropical storm to typhoon, the northernmost provinces of the Philippines, such as Cagayan, Isabela, Ilocos or Batanes, have already begun to experience rain and wind, which will intensify during the day.

However, the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (Pagasa) said the typhoon would lose strength once it hits land.

The typhoon – named locally as Ramon – was located at 7:00 am local time Tuesday (2300 GMT Monday) 110 kilometers east of the town of Calayan, in the province of Cagayan.

The storm was moving slowly in a northwest direction with sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour and gusts of 150 kph.

Although Pagasa announced the end of cyclone season in October, Kalmaegi will be the biggest typhoon seen in the Philippines in 2019, a year in which tropical storms have been notably quiet.
