Tropical Storm WUKONG / Quinta is on forecast track

Tropical Storm WUKONG / Quinta intensified again. It seems to keep “on-track” moving towards the central Visayas.

Forecast models show that the storm will follow its track from southern Leyte passing over northern Negros and then over southern Panay. 

Again, the danger isn’t the wind but the extreme masses of water it will carry over and on the islands. Be careful, friendly creeks and mountain streams may become flooding torrents.
