Typhoon UTOR / Labuyo out over the sea again

Typhoon UTOR / Labuyo 2013-08-12

After having rapidly crossed Northern Luzon Typhoon UTOR / Labuyo is out over the sea since noon. The rainbands are still affecting La Union and Benguet.

Several ship trips, bus lines and flights had been cancelled. Two big ferries of 2Go-Travel were blocked in the port of Bacolod (Negros). Roads to the Cagayan Valley and to Aurora had been blocked by landslides and washed away bridges. Access to Casiguran is impossible. 10 flights in Northern Luzon had been cancelled. More than 8,000 travelers were blocked in different ports and airports.

A man died in a landslide in Benguet and 23 fishermen who were out at sea failed to return home in four towns in Catanduanes province. Let’s hope they found shelter before the storm hit their boats. Communication facilities and power supply are still interrupted.
