Track Forecast

Typhoon MAYSAK

It seems that the center, the eye, is heading towards Aurora in northern Luzon. But the diameter of the cyclone being 860 km, bad weather will prevail from the Visayas to northern Luzon.

State weather agency PAGASA on Wednesday said that it is set to raise storm warning signals over Bicol and other regions of eastern Luzon on Thursday in anticipation of tropical cyclone Maysak’s arrival this Easter weekend. PAGASA weather division chief Dr. Esperanza Cayanan said that Maysak’s large diameter will definitely affect Metro Manila, so the agency is also set to raise storm warnings over the capital by Saturday or Sunday.
