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.
The multi-agency forecast has nearly not changed.
JMA say that the strom will hit Dinagat, southern Leyte, Cebu City northern Negros and southern Panay.
