MANILA, Philippines – Signal number 3 has been raised over seven areas in Mindanao Monday as Typhoon Pablo (international name Bopha) maintained its strength as it continued heading towards the country.

The provinces of Surigao del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Siargao, Dinagat, Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, and Davao Oriental are now under Signal number 3, according to the 11 a.m. weather bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Meanwhile, signal number 2 has been raised in the provinces of Southern Leyte, Bohol, Camiguin, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon,Davao del Norte, and Compostela Valley.

More areas in the Visayas and Mindanao were put under signal number 1 including Cuyo Island in Luzon. Eastern Samar, Western Samar, Leyte, Biliran, Aklan, Capiz, Antique, Iloilo, Guimaras, Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, Cebu, Siquijor have all been placed under signal number 1.

In Mindanao, the Zamboanga Provinces, Lanao Provinces, Davao del Sur, North Cotabato, and Maguindanao are also under signal number 1, Pagasa said.

Pagasa has recorded Pablo’s strength at 175 kilometers per hour (kph) maximum sustained winds with gustiness of up to 210 kph.

The center of the typhoon was located at 550 kilometers southeast of Hintuan, Surigao del Sur, the report said.

The rainfall amount is estimated to be from 15 to 30 millimeters per hour, considered as heavy to intense, within the 600 kilometer diameter of the Typhoon.

Pablo continues to move in a West Northwest direction at 24 kph, Pagasa said.

Residents near the shore and those living in mountainous areas have been warned of the potential destruction the storm may cause such as floods and landslides. Those living in coastal areas under Signal No. 3 and 2 were likewise alerted on possible storm surges and big waves. Fishermen and other seacraft have been warned not to venture out to sea.

Local government units have previously been warned by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) to conduct preemptive evacuation to ensure the safety of residents.

    Wala bang Oratio Imperata?  Pag si Enrile, pinagdadasalan ng mga bishops, pero si Typhoon Pablo dedma si monsignor.  

  • marcos_hitler_diktador_tuta

    Santo Calungsod, palundagin ang diyablo Pablo na ito at palapagin sa Chinese Communist Party Headquarters sa Beijing. Doon lang po sana siya kahit ilang araw lang. Salamat po.

  • SignTheWaiverNow

    May the Lord keep all our countrymen safe!

  • Love God

    Let us pray for God’s mercy and protection. The typhoon should weaken or change it direction. 

    Destruction of any type will weaken our economy and especially the poor will suffer the most.

    Lord we seek your mercy and save our beloved nation.

      @ Butuan Please lang ayaw nag komedya. Hinoon pag-andam kay aron dili ka magmahay o kaha magbasol. Ang pagbasol ra ba dili gyud mag-una.Moabot gyud ang bagyo nga Pablo nga giingong mas kusog pa kay sa Sendong. Busa pangamdam namo diha. Ang mga taga Cagayan de Oro nangandam na. Naa nay ilang information campaign kung unsay mga timailhan nga mag andam na sila para padulong sa evacuation centers. Unsa ba diay ang LGU Butuan naa bay susamang effort nga prepartion pareho sa Cagayan de Oro? Kay morag wala man mo masayod nga dapat mangandam namo. INYO PA MAN HINOON GIPANGANTI ANG MGA FORCASTER! Whether Pablo will be as dangerous and destructive as Sendong that we do not know. But IT IS BETTER PREPARED THAN SAY SORRY.

    • WeAry_Bat

    Misamis Occidental is usually an obscure and unknown province except when it becomes a hot and criminal spot. That’s why it’s not even included whether it is under signal no.1 or no. 2, no.3 or what. I’m following this because what is very well known is Misamis Oriental only.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/HBX5ADASRZU4SKUFDCRCFDMS44 el capitan

       duh elementary pa lang ako mene-memorize na namin ito…tapos ngayon di mo ito alam…ano ba naman  yan di ka ata pilipino eh….magkaharap sila pero medyo malayo din…

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/CPJ5MHAICC5RZZ5X7GGAG4CMPU Papias

      @virgoyap I understand how you feel. Pero ayaw na pagmahay ngano wala ma mention inyo province in the write-up. Nakaligtaan lang sa nagsulat sa news. Definite gyud nga moagi ang bagyong Pablo diha sa Mis. Occ. Ang hangin ug ulan dili man tingali molukso aron malapsan ang inyon probinsya. Busa pangandam na lang mo diha. You noticed this morning news Mis.Occ is included in the listing of those provinces under signal 1 together with Misamis Oriental and the other neighboring provinces. So kung asa ang Misamis Oriental and Lanao del Norte ug mga silingan nga provinces naapil, I presume didto sab nga grupo naapil ang Misamis Occidental. 

      • virgoyap

         He he he, how sure are you that I’m from Misamis Occidental, just read the comment of el capitan?

    Let’s all be prepared. The government has already done it’s part in disseminating all the information we should know about super typhoon Pablo. It has already given enough warnings and suggestions on what we should do in preparation of coming calamity like this. LET US NOW DO OUR SHARE! 

  • TheGUM

    Wunderground updated their forecast to 3-4 Category again!  Talagang malakas itong bagyo.  Tulungan tayo mga kababayan.  I’m overseas, my family is in the typhoon’s path, right smack at the center of the storm.  God help us.

  • gerp

    ingat kayo dyan mga kabayan…. prepare always for the worst sa mga ganitong calamity na parating… reserve a 3gallon supply of dinking water for individual person, 1pail of food supplies(canned goods, bread, biscuits, basta hindi perishable at no need ng lutuin), flashlights w/ extra batteries or candles w/ match sticks, one battery operated radio,…and as much as possible must safe sa mga evacuation centers…

  • White24

    MAY BAGYO NA NAMAN,, KC NAMAN BINUHAY NYO ANG RH BILL….. NO TO RH BILL!!

    • marionics

      oo nga, yan nga ang sinabi sa discovery channel, na rh bill nga daw ang dahilan ng bagyo. napaka scientific ng basehan mo he he

      • White24

        I don’t believe in science,, kaya don’t say i have a scientific base.. :)

    • carlorocci

      Pwede rin dahil may bagong santo ang Pilipinas kaya may bagyo…..Pinarada at binindesyunan ang batong santo kaya may bagyo….Ganoonnnn…..

      • White24

        oo nga,, dahil nung inarada at binindesyonan eh napakaganda ng pahanon,, nang umugong ang balita na pwerahin ang botohan sa RH bill ayon na nagka-Pablo… sana matamaan ka CARLOROCCI,,, hahahahahahh,, :)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Abdul-Rashid/100004367910013 Abdul Rashid

       Ba’t ihalo ninyo ang RH BILL dito? Sa mga katololiko lang ang interest nyan. Ayaw nila ma buntis ang mga madre na nagservice sa kanilang pangangailangan.

      • White24

        talagang maihahalo,, kasi naman yan ang puno’t dulo ni Pablo.. :)

    The damages will be pretty bad for sure and there will be plenty of victims. But what Aquino will do after, is visit the ravaged area for a few minutes, take some photo ops and then forget them afterwards. That’s what he did with the victims from devastating floods that damaged Manila in August.
