Nasty weather but no particular danger
Tropical storm and soon typhoon Sanba / Karen is heading northwards. It will not make landfall in the Philippines but its outer rain-bands and peripheral winds bring nasty weather to the Visayas and later Luzon.
Typhoon Sanba / Karen is expected to get stronger during the next two days and may become a typhoon category 3.
As it is within PAR (the Philippine Area of Responsibility) PAGASA will report twice daily. Our friends in Naga (Typhoon2000.com) are off-line because their boss gets married and will be out of office for honeymoon vacation.
Our best wishes go to David Michael V. Padua and his wife. Happy honeymoon!
And sorry, we also will be out of office until Saturday. We recommend to visit our weather page.
