Yes folks, again we are facing another strong typhoon and basing on the satellite images from PagAsa, typhoon Santi (Mirinae, international name) will directly hit our province of Bulacan. I just hope that my fellowmen are prepared and informed of the coming typhoon.

Here’s the forecast from Pagasa too:

The rest of the country will be mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and isolated thundertorms.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the Northeast will prevail over the rest of Luzon and Visayas and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the Northeast and Northwest with slight to moderate seas except during thunderstorms.
