Typhoon RAMMASUN/Glenda out in the sea

Typhoon RAMMASUN/Glenda

Typhoon RAMMASUN/Glenda has left the Philippine islands. It lost a lot of strength and is now off the coast of Bataan. Rainfall around Metro Manila got much weaker. Typhoon RAMMASUN/Glenda is now heading towards Hainan (China). Over the warm waters of the West-Philippine Sea it will again accumulate energy and get stronger.

The forecast of JMA (Japan Meteorological Agency) is as good as it always is.

Non of the Philippine weather agencies offers up to date weather reports. PAGASA’s last report is from 11:00 a.m. Typhoon2000 (Michel Padua) announced  already last night that he fears to be off-line today. And Weather Philippines seem also to suffer from the power cuts around Manila, Laguna and Bicol.

The best local source for weather information is now the DOST Project Noah. The 6 Doppler radar stations give an excellent real-time overview of  current rainfall. The layer technology is outstanding. One can choose any layer and put it over the map. My sincere congratulations go to Icannhas.
